Insect and crustacean lineages diverged over 500 Myr ago, and there are continuing uncertainties about whether they evolved from a common arthropod ancestor or, alternatively, they evolved independently from annelid worms. Despite the diversity of their limbs and lifestyles, the nervous systems of insects and crustaceans share many common features both in development and in function. Cellular and molecular embryology techniques reveal good evidence for homologies in the developing segmental… CONTINUE READING
