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.

    Scutigeromorph centipedes

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