Fine taxonomic sampling of nervous systems within Naididae (Annelida: Clitellata) reveals evolutionary lability and revised homologies of annelid neural components
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Introduction: An important goal for understanding how animals have evolved is to reconstruct the ancestral features and evolution of the nervous system. Many inferences about nervous system evolution are weak because of ...
Long-term time-lapse live imaging reveals extensive cell migration during annelid regeneration
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Time-lapse imaging has proven highly valuable for studying development, yielding data of much finer resolution than traditional “still-shot” studies and allowing direct examination of tissue and cell dynamics. ...
Plasticity and regeneration of gonads in the annelid Pristina leidyi
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-04)
Gonads are specialized gamete-producing structures that, despite their functional importance, are generated by diverse mechanisms across groups of animals and can be among the most plastic organs of the body. Annelids, the ...
