The evolution of certain ontogenetic processes appears to be of special importance to subsequent evolution of a phyletic line, and their occurrence suggests there are various ‘evolutionary capacity levels’ occupied by major taxa. Two groups that are at the same evolutionary capacity level probably originated in common within that level, which in turn is often shared with several other groups. Morphogenesis by invagination is characteristic of an early evolutionary capacity level common to… CONTINUE READING
