4. Despite the usefulness of model organisms for modern developmental biology, their relevance for phylogenetic studies such as evolutionary developmental biology is more contentious, as they are highly derived species. Within evo-devo there are still debates as to how to chose alternative model organisms whose development better represents basal forms (Jenner and Wills 2007).
