  • SUMMARY Segmentation as an attribute of organisms is being increasingly discussed in the recent literature because (1) new phylogenies suggest that organisms classically considered to be segmented may lie in separate clades; (2) the molecular basis of segmental development has been much studied; (3) various theories of bilaterian origins place weight on segmentation as a primitive character; (4) there has been recent stress on the importance of modularity as an evolutionary topic. However, the… CONTINUE READING
