The evolution of segmentation is one of the central questions in evolutionary developmental biology. Indeed, it is one of the best case-studies of the role of changes in development in the evolution of body plans. Segmented body plans are believed to have appeared several times in animal evolution, and to have contributed significantly to the evolutionary success of the taxa in which they are present. Because of the centrality of the subject, and the continuing interest in understanding segmentation, the book will prove an invaluable reference for students of evolutionary developmental biology at all levels – not only those interested specifically in segmentation – for years to come.


Key selling features:

  • Explores the role that segmentation has played in the phylogeny of animals
  • Documents the diverse mechanisms by which segmentation develops
  • Reviews the independent evolutionary origin of segmentation
  • Provides insight into the general patterns of serial homology
