Abstract Three historical phases can be distinguished in the study of brachiopod systematics over the past 75 years. Prior to 1956, systematic neontologists and paleontologists struggled to reconcile differences in perceived evolutionary patterns (and thus classifications) based largely on static morphological differences observed separately among living brachiopods and among fossil brachiopods. Following 1956, patterns of morphological distribution began to be interpreted relative to the… 

Molecular paleobiological insights into the origin of the Brachiopoda

Congruence of the traditional molecular phylogenetic analysis, microRNAs, and morphological cladograms suggest that Brachiopoda is monophyletic with Phoronida as its likely sister group.

The Evolution of Brachiopoda

Studying brachiopod ontogeny and development, population genetics, ecology, physiology, and biogeography, as well as molecular systematics and phylogenomics, enables us to better understand the context of evolutionary processes over the short term.

Phylogeny and morphologic evolution of the Ordovician Camerata (Class Crinoidea, Phylum Echinodermata)

A phylogenetic framework for revising camerate classification, elucidating patterns of morphologic evolution, and informing outgroup selection for future phylogenetic analyses of post-Ordovician camerates is provided.

Phylogenetic taxonomy and classification of the Crinoidea (Echinodermata)

The first phylogeny-based definition for the Clade Crinoidea and its constituent subclades is provided, and a phylogenetic perspective is used to inform a comprehensive revision of the traditional rank-based classification.

A TEST OF BIOGEOGRAPHICAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND ECOLOGICAL EFFECT ON MIDDLE AND LATE TRIASSIC BRACHIOPOD AND BIVALVE ABUNDANCE PATTERNS

It is concluded that the taxonomic and ecological differences among Late Triassic geographic regions recorded the initiation of a more mobile and infaunal life habit indicative of a modern lifestyle.

Paterimitra pyramidalis from South Australia: scleritome, shell structure and evolution of a lower Cambrian stem group brachiopod

The tommotiid Paterimitra pyramidalis Laurie, 1986, is redescribed based on well‐preserved material from the lower Cambrian Wilkawillina, Wirrapowie and Ajax limestones of the Flinders Ranges, South

Dead Clade Walking patterns are not evenly distributed among four regional molluscan time-series following the end-Cretaceous extinction, demonstrating the importance of spatial patterns in recovery dynamics.

A Supra-Ordinal Classification of the Brachiopoda

A new classification of the Brachiopoda is proposed to take into account recent advances in understanding of the anatomy, shell morphology, ontogeny and phylogeny of the phylum, and is divided into three subphyla, each typified by Recent species with early Palaeozoic ancestors and defined by easily identifiable synapomorphies.

STRATIGRAPHY IN PHYLOGENY RECONSTRUCTION

Although the authors can specify an optimality criterion with little problem, there remain significant obstacles in deriving accurate phylogenies from non-ideal data.

The monophyletic origin of the Brachiopoda

Cladistic analysis of both living forms and Lower Paleozoic taxa strongly supports the contention that brachiopods are monophytetic and closely related to the phoronids and suggests, however, that the ‘inarticulate’ Paterinida and Kutorginida are genealogically more closely related than they are to the remaining Inarticulata.

The phylogenetic position of Brachiopoda—a comparison of morphological and molecular data

The experimental insertion of a monophyletic taxon consisting of Brachiopoda and Phoronida into a widely accepted phylogenetic tree of Spiralia leads to the hypothesis that at least trimeric organization, mesosomal tentacular apparatus and heterogeneously assembled metanephridia are products of convergent evolution in Brachioboda plus Phor onida and Deuterostomia.

How phylogenetic inference can shape our view of heterochrony: examples from thecideide brachiopods

The phylogenetic results support the traditional interpretation of the reduction or loss of the secondary fibrous shell layer as a paedomorphic pattern, whereas the evolution of lophophore support structures suggests a peramorphic pattern.

The Stratophenetic Approach to Phylogeny Reconstruction in Vertebrate Paleontology

The importance of a dense and continuous fossil record for understanding the phylogeny of vertebrates is emphasized and the "stratophenetic" approach to phylogeny reconstruction is outlined, applying it first to the evolution of mammals at the species level and then to general problems of vertebrate phylogeny.

The mid-Paleozoic precursor to the Mesozoic marine revolution

The mid-Paleozoic radiation of durophages and response of the marine fauna was in many respects similar to events of the Mesozoic Marine Revolution, in effect, the Paleozoic precursor to that event.
