This accessible text is suitable for graduate students taking advanced courses in evolutionary developmental biology, invertebrate zoology, molecular phylogenetics and palaeontology, as well as professional researchers in these fields requiring an authoritative and up-to-date overview of this dynamic topic. I completely disagree with the previous review. This book is a concise summary of the current literature in the realm of animal phylogeny and evolution. Although terse, it does not lack in recognizing often ignored clades, and I find it to be an excellent resource for easily locating citations that might otherwise go unnoticed.
This book was not meant to be one author's cohesive story or idea about animal evolution; it is a review of the current state of research. As such, I appreciate that the book allows one to draw their own conclusions Glick on Feb 21, Add a Book Review. Perspectives in Animal Phylogeny and Evolution.
Author: Alessandro Minelli. Publish Date: Feb 15, At the same time, the emerging discipline of evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', has offered new insights into the origin and evolvability of major traits of animal architecture and life cycle. All these developments call for a revised interpretation of the pathways along which animal structure and development has evolved since the origin of the Metazoa.
Perspectives in Animal Phylogeny and Evolution takes on this challenge, successfully integrating morphological, fossil and molecular evidence to produce a novel reinterpretation of animal evolution. Central to the book's approach is an 'evo-devo' perspective on animal evolution with all the fresh insights this has given into the origin of animal organization and life cycles , complementary to the more traditional perspectives of pattern cladistics, comparative anatomy and embryology , mechanisms developmental biology and adaptation evolutionary biology.
The author advocates the need to approach the study of animal evolution with a critical attitude towards many key concepts of comparative morphology and developmental biology. Dittmar, K.

Sex allocation theory is a powerful approach to understand the conditions that favor the evolution and stability of simultaneous hermaphroditism. Aligned sequences were then concatenated into a supermatrix of 4, sites, and analysed for phylogenetic reconstruction under maximum likelihood ML . In addition, the decrease in taxonomic and morphological expertise for many clades hampers the assembly of large morphological datasets. One reason for that is that it soon became obvious that the growing number of gene expression data is not soundly interpretable without a profound knowledge of the morphology of the very organism under examination see below.
