Since the advent of modern molecular genetics
, biological evolution
has come to be understood as a change in genotype – a genetic alteration in the intergenerational frequency of alleles
in populations. However, long before the nature of genes
was deciphered, amateur and professional scientists were aware that morphological changes had occurred over time – phenotypic evidence of changes in body structure were observed in the fossil

The purpose of this site is to present clickable images that will illustrate the branching changes in evolution of bauplans. As such, this will be a work in slow progress limited by my ability to create images.
