These and other questions are answered thorought the book by a panel of experts that reads like a "who is who" of Aristotelian philosophy. Some essays are so good that they are, in my opinion, among the best pieces of philosophical work I'd read in years (personally enlighting was Furth's "Aristotle's biological universe: an overview").
More importantly, many of the questions Aristotle asked in his biological works are still with us even today. Although our worldview and his differ in many significant ways, any student of philosophy and history of science, as well as anyone interested to know for that matter, would benefit from studying Aristotle's answers... and on this "Philosophical issues in Aristotle's biology" is, in spite of its years, a most welcome help. Highly recommended.
