Definition for Recapitulation:
- That process of development of the individual organism from the embryonic stage onward, which displays a parallel between the development of an individual animal ( ontogeny) and the historical evolution of the species ( phylogeny). Some authors recognize two types of recapitulation, palingenesis, in which the truly ancestral characters conserved by heredity are reproduced during development; and cenogenesis ( kenogenesis or coenogenesis), the mode of individual development in which alterations in the development process have changed the original process of recapitulation and obscured the evolutionary pathway.
