Phylogeny of Blood Platelets

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Platelets in Thrombotic and Non-Thrombotic Disorders

Abstract

In biology, phylogenetics is the study of the evolutionary history and relationships among individuals or groups of organisms (e.g., species or populations). At present, molecular phylogenetics is the modern technique for helping with the classification of biological systems. This chapter briefly discusses the phylogeny of blood platelets.
