Comprehensive integrative studies are the hallmark of evolutionary developmental biology. A properly defined phylogenetic framework takes a central place in such analyses as the meeting ground for observation and inference. Molecular phylogenies take this place in many current studies on animal body plan evolution. In particular, 18S rRNA/DNA sequence analyses have yielded a new view of animal evolution that is often contrasted with a presumed traditional or classical view. First, I expose this… CONTINUE READING
