Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships (Crustacean Issues) by Stefan Koenemann, Ronald Jenner

By Stefan Koenemann, Ronald Jenner

In comparison to different arthropods, crustaceans are characterised by way of an remarkable disparity of physique plans. normally, the specialization of arthropod segments and appendages into distinctive physique areas has served as a handy foundation for larger category; even though, many relationships in the phylum Arthropoda nonetheless stay arguable. Can Crustacea also be thought of a monophyletic workforce? if that is so, then that are their closest relations in the Arthropoda? The solutions to questions corresponding to those will play a key function in realizing styles and methods in arthropod evolution, together with the disappearance of convinced physique plans from the fossil list, in addition to incidences of transition from aquatic to terrestrial environments. Crustacea and Arthropod Relationships, written through a staff of across the world well-known specialists, offers a large choice of viewpoints, whereas providing an updated precis of modern growth throughout a number of disciplines. With wealthy element and vibrancy, it addresses the evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the Arthropoda dependent upon molecular, developmental, morphological, and paleontological facts. quantity sixteen is the 1st within the sequence not to be completely devoted to discussions particular to crustaceans. whereas it's nonetheless crustaceo-centric, the concentration of this quantity has been prolonged to incorporate different teams of arthropods besides the Crustacea. This wider concentration deals demanding possibilities to judge higher-level relationships in the Arthropoda from a carcinologic point of view. This quantity is devoted to the occupation of Frederick R. Schram, the founding editor of CrustaceanIssues in 1983, in acceptance of his many stimulating and wide-ranging contributions to the evolutionary biology of arthropods more often than not, and of crustaceans particularly.
