Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Invertebrates 5: by Andreas Wanninger

By Andreas Wanninger

This multi-author, six-volume paintings summarizes our present wisdom at the developmental biology of all significant invertebrate animal phyla. the most elements of cleavage, embryogenesis, organogenesis and gene expression are mentioned in an evolutionary framework. every one bankruptcy offers an in-depth but concise evaluation of either classical and up to date literature, supplemented by way of various colour illustrations and micrographs of a given animal team. The mostly taxon-based chapters are supplemented by way of essays on topical elements suitable to modern day EvoDevo examine comparable to regeneration, embryos within the fossil list, homology within the age of genomics and the function of EvoDevo within the context of reconstructing evolutionary and phylogenetic eventualities. an inventory of open questions on the finish of every bankruptcy could function a resource of suggestion for the following iteration of EvoDevo scientists. Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Invertebrates is a must have for any scientist, instructor or scholar attracted to developmental and evolutionary biology in addition to more often than not invertebrate zoology.

This 3rd quantity on ecdysozoans is devoted to the Hexapoda. regardless of being the main species-rich animal clade via some distance, relatively little developmental info is accessible for almost all of hexapods, in stark distinction to at least one of the best-investigated species on the earth, the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. as a result, a whole bankruptcy is devoted to this famous and demanding version species, whereas the 2 ultimate chapters summarize our present wisdom on early and overdue improvement in different hexapods.
