Definition. The phylogeny of a group, in this case back-boned animals (vertebrates), represents the course of evolutionary change undergone by that group over time. It is typically represented in the form of a dichotomous branching tree in which the vertical axis represents time and the horizontal axis represents closeness of relationship (Fig. 1). The title of the volume (Vertebrates, Phylogeny, and Philosophy) reflects that request. Though individual articles deal almost exclusively with fossil mammals, emphases cross the spectrum of evolutionary biology, including systematic paleontology, considerations of adaptation, ontogeny, analyses of evolutionary tem— po and mode, biogeographic.

F. Gadow. Interrelationships of the fossil and Recent Vertebrata. (All terminal taxa are clades, except for the Thelodonti, which are possibly paraphyletic - see Thelodonti page). The main characteristics supporting the nodes of this phylogeny are: Node 1: Mineralized exoskeleton, sensory-line canals and grooves.   Vertebrata. These animals have a true vertebral column and internal skeleton, allowing a completely different distribution of muscle attachment points to be used for movement.; The members of subphylum Vertebrata possess notochord during the embryonic period.; The notochord is replaced by a cartilaginous or bony vertebral column in the adult.; Thus all vertebrates are chordates but all. Other ways of classifying the vertebrates have been devised, particularly with emphasis on the phylogeny of early amphibians and reptiles. An example based on Janvier (, ), Shu et al. (), and Benton () is given here: Subphylum Vertebrata. Palaeospondylus; Superclass Agnatha or Cephalaspidomorphi (lampreys and other jawless fishes)Clade: Olfactores.

The vertebrates or Vertebrata form an ancient group with a history spanning some million years. On the one hand, they include the organisms most familiar to Phylogeny refers to the pattern of descent among taxa. It describes, in other words, the evolutionary or genealogi-cal relationships among them. Evolution is a historicalFile Size: 2MB. Traditional versus Phylogenetic classification of Vertebrata. Vertebrates are those animals that have a backbone. The traditional system (right-hand column) recognizes seven taxonomic Classes of living Vertebrata: Agnatha [jawless "fish"], Chrondrichthyes [cartilaginous "fish"], Osteichthyes [bony fish], Amphibia [scaleless tetrapods], Reptilia [scaly tetrapods], Aves [feathered bipeds], and.
