has exact synonym
  • skeleton system
has narrow synonym
  • set of all bones and joints
has related synonym
  • Skelettsystem
homology notes
  • By taking a holistic approach, integration of the evidence from molecular and developmental features of model organisms, the phylogenetic distribution in the 'new animal phylogeny' and the earliest fossilized remains of mineralized animal skeletons suggests independent origins of the skeleton at the phylum level.[debated][VHOG]
