What would you choose if you had to represent the polychaetes with one
photo? Well, the editors of Science elected for ... you guessed it.
And a good choice too (any contrary views are welcome to be aired), though
it may be more linked to the 2nd article below than is apparent to me at
The news article is:
Pennisi,Elizabeth; Roush,Wade (1977): Developing a new view of
evolution. Science 277(4 July), 34-37.
It's about advances in evolutionary developmental biology & worth a read
if you haven't seen it already.
The research relevant to polychaetes (limb development) is, I assume (not
having yet seen beyond the abstract), in:
Panganiban,G; Irvine,SM; Lowe,C; Roehl,H; Corley,LS; Sherbon,B; Grenier,
JK; Fallon,JF; Kimble,J; Walker,M; Wray,GA; Swalla,BJ; Martindale,MQ;
Carroll,SB (1997): The origin and evolution of animal appendages.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of
America 94(10), 5162-5166.
