Arthropod phylogeny: onychophoran brain organization suggests an archaic relationship with a chelicerate stem lineage

Strausfeld, Nicholas; Strausfeld, Camilla; Loesel, Rudi; Rowell, David M; Stowe, Sally


Neuroanatomical studies have demonstrated that the architecture and organization among neuropils are highly conserved within any order of arthropods. The shapes of nerve cells and their neuropilar arrangements provide robust characters for phylogenetic analyses. Such analyses so far have agreed with molecular phylogenies in demonstrating that entomostracans + malacostracans belong to a clade (Tetraconata) that includes the hexapods. However, relationships among what are considered to be...[Show more]
