Figure 2

An overview of gastropod phylogeny, with emphasis on taxa most relevant to the study of gastropod immunobiology. This tree should not be viewed as a formal hypothesis of gastropod relationships but as an overview to assist readers in placing the approximate phylogenetic positions among gastropods prominently figuring in studies of gastropod immunology. Relationships outlined in trees presented by Aktipis et al (2008)4 and Klussmann-Kolb et al (2008)137 were used to delineate the relationships among the groups singled out for discussion.
