Animal Evolution: Interrelationships of the Living Phyla

By Claus Nielsen

Animal Evolution offers a complete research of the evolutionary interrelationships and myriad variety of the Animal country. It reports the classical, morphological details from constitution and embryology, in addition to the hot facts won from stories utilizing immune stainings of nerves and muscle groups and blastomere markings which makes it attainable to stick to the destiny of unmarried blastomeres the entire strategy to early organogenesis. until eventually lately, the data from analyses of gene sequences has tended to supply myriads of fairly diverging bushes. notwithstanding, the newest iteration of molecular equipment, utilizing many genes, expressed series tags, or even entire genomes, has introduced a brand new balance to the sector. For the 1st time this booklet brings jointly the knowledge from those different fields, and demonstrates that it truly is certainly now attainable to construct a phylogenetic tree from a mixture of either morphology and gene sequences.

This completely revised 3rd variation of Animal Evolution brings the topic totally modern, in particular in mild of the most recent advances in molecular innovations. The booklet is generously illustrated all through with finely precise line drawings and transparent diagrams, lots of them new.
