Lecture Description

The fossil record had been thought to provide no evidence of embryonic development in early animals. However, over the past decade or so a series of exceptionally preserved animal embryos from Cambrian and Ediacaran rocks have been described. These provide our first direct evidence of embryology at the dawn of animal evolution.
