The Comparative Morphology, Development and Biomechanics (CMDB) section of the Canadian Society of Zoologists aims to promote and enhance interactions, dialogue and intellectual cross-fertilization among the many zoologists and paleontologists who work on morphology (functional or comparative), biomechanics, larval biology, development, and developmental evolution, and particularly those who work at the interfaces between development, morphology and evolution. We welcome participation by Canadians and non-Canadians alike.
