This multi-author, six-volume paintings summarizes our present wisdom at the developmental biology of all significant invertebrate animal phyla. the most features of cleavage, embryogenesis, organogenesis and gene expression are mentioned in an evolutionary framework. every one bankruptcy provides an in-depth but concise assessment of either classical and up to date literature, supplemented through a number of colour illustrations and micrographs of a given animal crew. The principally taxon-based chapters are supplemented by way of essays on topical features appropriate to modern day EvoDevo study reminiscent of regeneration, embryos within the fossil checklist, homology within the age of genomics and the function of EvoDevo within the context of reconstructing evolutionary and phylogenetic eventualities. a listing of open questions on the finish of every bankruptcy may possibly function a resource of proposal for the subsequent new release of EvoDevo scientists. Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Invertebrates is a must have for any scientist, instructor or pupil drawn to developmental and evolutionary biology in addition to usually invertebrate zoology.
This quantity covers the animals that experience a ciliated larva of their lifecycle (often grouped jointly because the Lophotrochozoa), in addition to the Gnathifera and the Gastrotricha. The interrelationships of those taxa are poorly resolved and a generally permitted, clade-defining autapomorphy has but to be outlined. Spiral cleavage is typically assumed to be the ancestral mode of cleavage of this grouping and as a result the clade is often called Spiralia by means of a few authors, even if others like to expand the time period Lophotrochozoa to this complete assemblage. other than the taxon-based chapters, this quantity incorporates a bankruptcy that highlights similarities and alterations within the methods that underlie regeneration and ontogeny, utilizing the Platyhelminthes as a case study.
