Animal Evolution presents a complete phylogenetic analysis of all animal species. Using the most up-to-date cladistic techniques available, author Claus Nielsen first analyzes each phylum to determine its appropriate ancestral group, then identifies sister phyla to construct a complete phylogenetic tree of extant metazoa. Throughout, reviews of phyla anatomy, ultrastructure, and embryology are expertly presented. This book marks the first time that a systematic cladistic analysis of phylogenetic relationships has been integrated into a text which also describes the main features of the various groups. With its copious illustrations and extensive coverage of the literature, Animal Evolution will be the standard against which to compare the results of traditional and molecular phylogenetic methods. It will be eagerly read by students and researchers in evolutionary and systematic zoology.

Review:

"Claus Nielson has compiled an extremely impressive review of the major features of animal phyla, and within a phylogenetic framework. This masterpiece integrates both developmental and adult characteristics into a synthesis that will form THE fundamental reference for the evolution of animal phyla for at least the next decade--a truly impressive accomplishment. This work not only offers a complete phylogenetic analysis of all animal phyla, it contains new hypotheses of relationships where such rearrangements are supported by clear, unambiguous synapomorphies. . . .This book has great potential as a university classroom text. Although this does not appear to be the intention of the text, learning about the progression of animal complexities could not be presented in a more lucid manner for students."-- Robert W. Murphy, The Canadian Field-Naturalist


"Nielsen has prepared an exceptionally valuable, concise book. . .A must for all zoologists and biologists engaged in teaching the systematics of animal groups." --Choice
