Oraciones de ejemplo
  • Rouse chose as terminal taxa for his analysis most of the accepted polychaete families, and in addition Clitellata, Rotifera, Platyhelminthes, Nemertea, Mollusca, Sipuncula, Echiura, and Entoprocta.
  • However, opinions do differ for the scoring of three phyla in particular: Platyhelminthes, Nemertea, and Rotifera (variously scored as primitively possessing or lacking a prototroch).
  • This is strikingly illustrated if we just consider character choice in two subsequent publications by the same research group, for example, for placing the ‘acoelomate’ worms, Platyhelminthes, Nemertea, and Gnathostomulida.
