CBIO-4307 Phylogeny in Arthropods

It discusses one of the most controversial issues in animal phylogeny in the past and present days, namely the origin and evolution of arthropods, in the light of new proposals of molecular phylogeny and the evo-devo, therefore, this course dwells on this area of arthropods based on the vast literature and the fossil records, starting with trilobites, chelicerata and crustaceans, with an emphasis on the study of phylogeny of basal winged insects, such as "Paleoptera". Based on this, students will develop a research project on the groups of arthropods that they select as object of their study.
