Because of the high number of species and its ancient roots in evolution, the phylum Nematoda is well suited for comparative embryonic study. Using 4D microscopy we have reconstructed the embryonic lineages of several nematodes. This allows us to identify changing developmental strategies in the phylum Nematoda. Generally there has been a shift in the phylum from a non-determined, non-strict development to a faster, highly determined embryonic development.

En raison du nombre élevé d’espèces et de ses racines anciennes dans l’évolution, le phylum Nematoda est bien approprié à des études d’embryologie comparée. A l’aide d’un microscope 4D, les lignages embryonnaires de plusieurs nématodes ont été reconstruits. Cela nous a permis d’identifier les modifications de stratégie développementales dans le phylum. Généralement, il y a eu un changement dans le phylum depuis un développement non déterminé et non précis jusqu’à un développement embryonnaire très rapide et hautement déterminé.
