In this essay, Bersani establishes what he calls "correspondences" between processes of heterogeneous scale like cosmological generation, the trajectory of human phylogenesis and finally the self-referential level of an analogical thought operation.
Plumage color is an important economic trait, which plays a crucial role in determining breed purity and phylogenesis. The coloration of hairs in mammals is mainly determined by the distribution of two types of melanin, eumelanin and pheomelanin, which produce brown to black and yellow to red colorations, respectively (Oribe et al., 2012).
However, under the assumption that dreaming is a primordial phenomenon, rooted in the biological heritage of mankind (phylogenesis), it is difficult to conceive of it as the sequel of playing; and since the reporting of dreams presupposes a relative mastery of language, I suggest that the real transition occurs from dreaming to both playing and daydreaming.
Microstructure of Ssin derivatives as a reflection of phylogenesis of vertebrates.
Of special note is the chapter focused upon the 'Evolution and Phylogenesis of Music Rhythm'.
Phylogeny, or phylogenesis, on the other hand, is defined by Hodgson as "the complete and ongoing evolution of a population, including changes in its composition and that of the gene pool." (4) Phylogenetic systematics or cladistics studies how species or other groups are related and maps this relatedness in "phylogenetic trees," gradually unveiling the whole "tree of life." Phylogeny is characterized by variable elements, namely genes, and the lack of a predetermined end-man is not the end of evolution, contrary to what many believe.
Endosymbiont phylogenesis in the dryophthoridae weevils: evidence for bacterial replacement.
Stiegler therefore also refers to what he calls 'epiphylogenesis', that is a type of human evolution that is no longer thought of in merely biological terms (phylogenesis) but is essentially to be found in the development of the human's technical supports or 'organised inorganic matter'.
It is in this sense of mediating process between human and the world that Bruner understands the role of culture, which justifies establishing a discontinuity between human and the rest of the phylogenesis. Thus, language allows for the construction and elaboration of mutual networks of expectations that are the matrix over which culture is constructed.
Martinez) in 2003 discovered close affinities between eastern sub-Saharan populations and those of Egypt in the phylogenetic trees (Phylogenesis is a term in Biology describing the sequence of events involved in the evolution of a species, etc).
