Animal architecture

Display Description

In form and function, multicellular animals exhibit an immense variety of sizes and shapes. Some are built for running, swimming or flight; others never move as adults. Some display radial symmetry, while others are bilaterally symmetrical. Yet, this diversity of body plans is the result of conserved developmental patterns that arose in deep time. Here you have the chance to see many predominantly marine branches of the Tree-of-Life that are rarely seen outside of Natural History Museums.
