Abstract

Recent genetic and molecular data from Drosophila support the long-standing observations of morphology in suggesting that segmentation of the insect embryo proceeds in two phases. Organization of the cephalic segments uses a mechanism distinct from the familiar bierarchical cascade of segmentation genes that subdivides the trunk of the embryo.
