Progress in the knowledge of the phylogeny of the Chaetognatha needs both molecular biology and zoology
Roxane-M Barthélémy and Jean-Paul Casanova
Many authors have emphasized discrepancies between molecular phylogenies and morphological data, and if so have argued caution in accepting the former. Errors in molecular results are a consequence either of the tree reconstruction methods retained or of a bad knowledge of zoology, many previous papers on the biology of organisms being ignored or disregarded. Since the molecular and cladistic phylogenetic tools used until now have failed to clarify the chaetognaths origins, a reappraisal of the molluscan hypothesis based on the traditional zoology is provided.
