Abstract: Polychaetes are a large group of segmented worms that display an enormous morphological diversity. Molecular data has shown in recent years that groups previously thought to be separate from polychaetes are actually part of the group. The relationships within polychaete groups have been difficult to discern, and molecular data only partly corroborate classifications done on morphological grounds. The main focus of this thesis is on Phyllodocidae, a family of polychaetes, and its phylogenetic rel... more
