Cover Legend

An adult form of Ciona intestinalis, a tunicate species studied by Nori Satoh’s laboratory in Kyoto University, Japan. Prof. Sato is the winner of the 2005 edition of the Kowalevsky Medal, awarded by the St. Petersburg Society of Naturalists (Russia) for outstanding contributions to the field of evolutionary developmental biology (Evo-Devo ). For further details, see the article by Kuratani et al. pp. 451-454 in the present issue.
