By Daniel H. Shain

Annelids provide a variety of experimentally available gains making them a rich experimental subject across the organic sciences, including evolutionary improvement, neurosciences and stem mobilephone research. 

This quantity introduces the Annelids and their software in evolutionary developmental biology, neurobiology, and environmental/ecological stories, together with severe environments. The e-book demonstrates the range of fields during which Annelids are already proving to be an invaluable experimental system. Describing the application of Annelids as a learn version, this book is a useful source for all researchers within the field.Content:

Example text

In this chapter, I will present an overview of these new insights into annelid phylogeny as derived from molecular data, and summarize which genes and subtaxa have been analyzed, placing an emphasis on model annelid species. 1 Nuclear Genes The gene for which the most comprehensive taxon sampling is available is nuclear ribosomal 18S rRNA (18S). This gene has been sequenced in representatives of nearly all polychaete and clitellate families, and several annelid phylogenies based on 18S rRNA have been published (Apakupakul et al.

2008) and will certainly expedite this process. With respect to the second argument, the time frame of annelid radiation is of special interest. The oldest unequivocal annelid fossils stem from the Cambrian and are ∼530 million years old (Conway Morris and Peel 2008). This corresponds with the earliest records of sipunculid fossils (Huang et al. 2004), which are morphologically very similar to modern sipunculids. Given that sipunculids are included in the annelid radiation, one can conclude that a radiation of at least 530 million years must be reconstructed.
