A New Morphological Phylogeny of the Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) Accords with Molecular Evidence and Renders Microfossils Accessible for Cladistics

Author(s) : Ben Thuy, Sabine Stöhr Source : Plos One, Published: May 26, 2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0156140 Abstract : Ophiuroid systematics is currently in a state of upheaval, with recent molecular estimates fundamentally clashing with traditional, morphology-based classifications. Here, we attempt a long overdue recast of a morphological phylogeny estimate of the Ophiuroidea taking into account latest.. Lire la suite

Coleoid cephalopods in the European Mesozoic: Systematics, evolution and paleobiogeography of fossil coleoids

Coleoidea is a subclass of the invertebrate class Cephalopoda and typified nowadays by squids, cuttlefish and octopods. During Mesozoic times, another group of coleoids dominated the seas: the belemnites. We found evidence that the fossil coleoid fauna from Luxembourg plays a key role in the evolution of cephalopods. Our daily work includes morphological analyses and.. Lire la suite
