  • This chapter describes embryos and their evolution. Animal evolution has produced and is producing a great variety of animal forms. The ways in which this variation appears in the life history of the animals concerned is part of the province of embryology. Caenogenetic modifications are those variations that benefit the young form, embryo or larva, and have no particular significance for the adult. Very often they are lost at hatching, birth, or metamorphosis. The converse situation… CONTINUE READING
