Abstract

Tardi-what? Tardigrades, also known as water bears, are a little-studied phylum of animals. First discovered 230 years ago, there are at least 700 different species living on land, in fresh water and in the sea. The tardigrades represent a successful group of animals – in flourishing existence after about 600 million years of evolution – that could hold keys to the patterns and mechanisms by which animal body plans evolve.
