Evolution of centipedes

An introduction to the research of Dr Greg Edgecombe on the evolutionary biology of centipedes.

  • Relationships between major groups of centipedes (paintings by Barbara Duperron, after Giribet and E
    Centipede phylogeny

    Understanding the evolutionary context of centipede segmentation demands an explicit phylogeny on which gene expression and developmental characters can be mapped.

  • Parascutigera
    Scutigeromorph centipedes

    Taxonomic work aims to document the scutigeromorph fauna of Australia, which includes perhaps one-quarter of global species diversity.
