Model invertebrates are extensively studied animal species that lack a vertebral column and are chosen for the ease of investigating particular biological phenomena. Research on model invertebrates provides biological insights relevant to other organisms in many areas including genetics, development, biochemistry, evolution, disease, neurobiology and behaviour.
