The Heterobranchia –a new concept of the phylogeny of the higher Gastropoda
Abstract In an attempt to reconstruct the phylogeny of the higher gastropods, the essential characters are first critically examined to determine occurrence and systematic value. From here theExpand

Larval Planktotrophy—A Primitive Trait in the Bilateria?
The concept of Gosta Jagersten of a primary biphasic metazoan life-cycle, consisting of a planktotrophic larva and a benthic adult, forms the basis for several theories on metazoan phylogeny. In thisExpand
