Ontogeny, Phylotypic Periods, Paedomorphosis, and Ontogenetic Systematics
TLDR
It is shown that a major revision of the main terms which are associated with the “ontogeny and phylogeny/evolution” field is urgently necessarily needed, and the concept of ontogenetic systematics is hereby refined.
Morphology and phylogenetic analysis of five deep-sea golden gorgonians (Cnidaria, Octocorallia, Chrysogorgiidae) in the Western Pacific Ocean, with the description of a new species
TLDR
The morphology and genetic analysis of seamounts in the Western Pacific Ocean and South China Sea resulted in collecting 18 specimens of golden gorgonians are described as one new species, Chrysogorgia carolinensissp.
Major Research Traditions in Twentieth-Century Evolutionary Biology: The Relations of Germany’s Darwinism with Them
TLDR
It is argued that the Darwinian theories interacted with national research traditions such that the resulting conceptual body represented an amalgamation of a metatheoretical framework with the “purely empirical” theoretical beliefs such as the theory of natural selection.
The concept of macroevolution in view of modern data
TLDR
The fundamental bases of the concept of macroevolution, the problems of methodology and methods of the study of organismal evolution are considered and it is shown that the processes at the Macroevolutionary level agree with the epigenetic theory of evolution.
A new ornithurine from the Early Cretaceous of China sheds light on the evolution of early ecological and cranial diversity in birds
TLDR
It is found that, consistent with a proposed developmental shift in cranial ontogeny late in avialan evolution, this elongate rostrum in Changzuiornis ahgmi is achieved through elongation of the maxilla while the premaxilla remains only a small part of rostral length.
Extraordinarily Preserved Talpids (Mammalia, Lipotyphla) and the Evolution of Fossoriality
TLDR
The fossil record provides evidence to support the independent evolution of extreme fossoriality in these groups, despite the close relationship between Talpini and Scalopini based on morphological data.
The Correct Taxon Name, Authorship, and Publication Date of Extant Ten-Armed Coleoids
TLDR
A variety of conflicting names with different authorship is available and has been repeatedly cited for living ten-armed coleoid cephalopods, but the correct name, authorship, and date is shown.
Tree Oriented Data Analysis
TLDR
Property of the Fr\'echet function are used to develop an algorithmic system for computing Fr‐echet means and a sticky law of large numbers is described which describes a surprising stability of the topological tree structure of sample Fr¬echet mean at that of the population Frµechetmean.
Adolf Naef (1883–1949): On Foundational Concepts and Principles of Systematic Morphology
TLDR
An English translation of a previously unpublished typescript from Naef’s estate is presented, which Naef intended as the introduction to a textbook on Comparative Anatomy for which he was unable to find a publisher before his sudden death in 1949.
A clash of traditions: the history of comparative and experimental embryology in Sweden as exemplified by the research of Gösta Jägersten and Sven Hörstadius
TLDR
Until the 1940s research traditions were often imported from Germany to Sweden, and young scientists went to German universities to learn new techniques and get in touch with the latest ideas, to reflect the tensions between these traditions.
