Research

Arthropod phylogeny

Inferring deep branchpoints in the largest animal phylum, Arthropoda, is a challenge for reconstructing the tree of life. A combined approach to arthropod phylogeny uses

  • external morphology
  • internal anatomy
  • molecular sequence data
  • the palaeontological record of morphology, especially from exceptionally preserved, “Burgess Shale-type” Palaeozoic faunas. 

Molecular work on arthropod phylogeny has featured collaboration with Gonzalo Giribet (Harvard University) and Ward Wheeler (American Museum of Natural History) since the 1990s. The position of myriapods (centipedes, millipedes, pauropods and symphylans) in arthropod evolution is a special focus of this work. 

Recent projects include
  • phylogenomic sampling of arthropod diversity using Expressed Sequence Tags (with Max Telford and Omar Rota-Stabelli), drawing on >250 genes 
  • a survey of arthropod microRNAs (with Davide Pisani and Kevin Peterson) that has helped to clarify the relationships of onychophorans and tardigrades to arthropods, and provides new support for the Mandibulata
  • "morphological clock" estimates of evolutionary rates in the Cambrian Explosion (with Mike Lee)
Buck Quarry

Collecting in the Emu Bay Shale, Buck Quarry, Kangaroo Island, 2011

Current research on soft-part preservation in the early Palaeozoic concentrates on

  • documenting the fauna of the early Cambrian Emu Bay Shale, South Australia, the richest Cambrian Konservat-Lagerstaette in Australia
  • preservation and anatomy of neural and sensory structures in Cambrian Ecdysozoa (with Xiaoya Ma, NHM, and Nick Strausfeld, University of Arizona: supported by the Leverhulme Trust)
  • anatomy and phylogenetics of anomalocaridids (with Allison Daley, University of Oxford: supported by the Swedish Research Council)
Anomalocaris Nature

Nature article on the eyes of Anomalocaris (Paterson et al., 2011)

The Emu Bay Shale project was funded by a Linkage Grant from the Australian Research Council (2007-2009) and fieldwork has been supported by National Geographic. Arthropod descriptions are conducted with John Paterson (University of New England) and Diego Garcia-Bellido (University of Adelaide).

Centipede systematics 

A combination of molecular and morphological data provides a toolkit for reconstructing the evolutionary history of Chilopoda (centipedes)

Centipede research explores

  • the deep branchings between the five extant centipede orders, which date to the Palaeozoic
  • relationships within each of these major groups

Taxonomic work has especially concentrated on Scutigeromorpha, Lithobiomorpha and Scolopendromorpha, with emphasis on the biota of Australia and other southern landmasses.

Recent and current projects in centipede systematics

    • the foregut and peristomatic structures (with Markus Koch, University of Bonn)
    • a multi-locus molecular sampling (with Varpu Vahtera, University of Turku, and Gonzalo Giribet, Harvard University) 
  • morphology of the preoral chamber in Geophilomorpha and its contribution to geophilomorph phylogeny and the evolution of centipede feeding (with Markus Koch)
  • Scolopendropsis

  • confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) as a tool for anatomical studies of Chilopoda 
  • morphology and systematics of centipedes from Cretaceous and Cenozoic amber
  • systematics of the Scolopendromorpha of Thailand (PhD research by Warut Siriwut, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok)
  • molecule- and morphology-based taxonomy of Scolopendridae from the Western Ghats, India (with Jahnavi Joshi, Indian Institute of Science)

Animal evolution

Euperipatoides

Section through the cuticle and body wall muscles of the onychophoran Euperipatoides kanangrensis. Expressed Sequence Tags for this species support a close relationship between onychophorans and arthropods.

Collaboration on the interrelationships of animal phyla was initiated in the “Assembling the Protostome Tree of Life” project, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (2004-2008). The relationships of arthropods to other protostomes are one of its research foci.

Our approach has involved broad taxonomic sampling of Expressed Sequence Tags, which allow hundreds or thousands of genes to be used in phylogenetic inference. These have included the first transcriptomic data for several animal phyla. Molecular work has been led by Casey Dunn (Brown University), and Andreas Hejnol (University of Bergen).

Our morphology team developed complimentary morphological datasets for large parts of the Spiralia (especially annelids) and Ecdysozoa (especially scalidophorans), including key fossil taxa. Work on this project also includes Greg Rouse (Scripps Institute of Oceanography) and our collaborators at the University of Copenhagen (Reinhardt Kristensen, Martin Vinther Sørensen, Katrine Worsaae).

limnognathia pic

Limnognathia maerski (Micrognathozoa), a female photographed alive by Reinhardt Kristensen.

Recent expeditions have targeted phyla that still lack phylogenomic data, including Micrognathozoa and Loricifera. Collecting on Disko Island, Greenland, in the summer of 2010 built up a sample of the micrognathozoan Limnognathia maerski from its type locality. Work at the Station Biologique de Roscoff in May 2011, funded by the EU’s ASSEMBLE program, provided live material of the loriciferan Armorloricus. Phylogenomic data being generated in Casey Dunn’s lab will test the relationship of Limnognathia to other members of Gnathifera and explore the position of Loricifera in the Ecdysozoa.
