Sile, probably from the Latin silens (silent), is the name of a small, lovely river in north-eastern Italy. Its waters, originating from a number of lowland springs, have pretty uniform temperature
The ontogeny of trilobite segmentation: a comparative approach
An additional and complementary ontogenetic scheme based on the generation of new trunk segments is proposed, which includes an anamorphic phase during whichnew trunk segments appeared, and an epimorphicphase during which the number of segments in the trunk remained constant.
The mitochondrial genome of the house centipede scutigera and the monophyly versus paraphyly of myriapods.
It is suggested that water-to-land transition occurred at least three times (hexapods, myriapods) during the evolution of the Arthropoda, which would increase to four the main events of land colonization in arthropods (once for centipedes, once for millipedes).
A common terminology for the external anatomy of centipedes (Chilopoda)
A common terminology for the external morphological characters of centipedes (Chilopoda) is proposed, selecting those most frequently used or those that have been introduced explicitly from the alternatives used in the English literature.
The changing role of the embryo in evolutionary thought: roots of Evo-Devo
In this thought-provoking book, Ron Amundson illustrates two sides, historical and philosophical, of what he regards as the unbridgeable contrast between the Evolutionary Synthesis and today’s evolutionary developmental biology, or Evo-Devo.

This theme issue pursues an exploration of the potential of taking into account the environmental sensitivity of development to explaining the evolution of metazoan life cycles, with special focus on
The Development of Animal Form: Ontogeny, Morphology, and Evolution
The nature of development, cellular Darwinism and the origin of animal form, and Evo-devo perspectives on homology are discussed.
