Summary
Describing and understanding the evolution of the diversity of bodyplans is a major goal of evolutionary biology. Taking a modern, integrated approach to this question, a group of researchers describe how modern techniques and disciplines have been combined, resulting in a dramatic renaissance in the study of animal evolution

Contents
I. Origins of animals -- 1. The earliest fossil record of the animals and its significance -- 2. The Ediacaran emergence of bilaterians: congruence between the genetic and the geologic fossil records -- 3. Genomic, phylogenetic, and cell biological insights into metazoan origins -- 4. The mouth, the anus and the blastopore -- open questions about questionable openings -- II. The Bilateria -- 5. Metazoan body plan origins: the larval revolution -- 6. Assembling the spiralian tree of life -- 7. The evolution of nervous system centralization -- 8. The origins and evolution of the Ecdysozoa -- 9. Deciphering deuterostome phylogeny: molecular, morphological and palaeontological perspectives -- 10. Molecular genetic insights into deuterostome evolution from the direct-developing hemichordate Saccoglossus kowalevskii -- III. Themes and Perspectives -- 11. Invertebrate Problematica: kinds, causes, and solutions -- 12. Improvement of molecular phylogenetic inference and the phylogeny of Bilateria -- 13. Beyond linear sequence comparisons: the use of genome-level characters for phylogenetic reconstruction -- 14. The animal in the genome: comparative genomics and evolution -- 15. MicroRNAs and metazoan phylogeny: big trees from little genes -- 16. The evolution of developmental gene networks: lessons from comparative studies on holometabolous insects -- 17. Conserved developmental processes and the evolution of novel traits: wounds, embryos, veins, and butterfly eyespots -- 18. Reassembling animal evolution: a four-dimensional puzzle
