Development involves a series of developmental events, separated by transformations, that follow a particular order or developmental sequence. The sequence may in turn be arbitrarily subdivided into contiguous segments (developmental stages). We discuss the properties of developmental sequences. We also examine the differing analytical approaches that have been used to analyse developmental sequences in an evolutionary context. Ernst Haeckel was a pioneer in this field. His approach was… CONTINUE READING
