In biological taxonomy, a phylum (plural phyla) is a taxon in the rank below kingdom and above class. A Phylum represents the largest scientific grouping of life forms sharing evolutionary certain requirements of a common ancestor in evolution. Phyla can also be considered as a group sharing the same general body plan, which includes both the external appearance, but is more importantly dependent of the bodies internal organization.

There are 36 recognized animal phyla, of which but nine (Mollusca, Porifera, Cnidaria, Platyhelminthes, Nematoda, Annelida, Arthropoda, Echinodermata, and Chordata) contain the vast majority of described, extant species. Debate continues regarding whether the different phyla appeared on earth prior to the Cambrian Explosion some 544 million years ago that roughly speaking marks the time when life forms had become large enough and many had acquired hardened body parts, so that a findable fossil record could begin to accumulate. The absence of a Precambrian fossil record greatly worried Darwin. The late Precambiran and Cambrian are believed to be times when some life forms that would otherwise deserve the rank of phylum both evolved only to meet extinction without leaving descendents.

The taxonomic rank of phylum is normally used with specificity as if science truly knows the placement of life in the tree of life. Therefore, remember not to put too sharp of a point on the term. Consequently the number of phyla, both extant and extinct, as well as what group constitutes a phylum varies from author to author, and changes over time. Modern molecular science (phylogenetics) has helped much to clarify the evolutionary descendancy of life forms, but can not help much to resolve mysteries within the fossil record.

Body plan is one approach to defining phyla. Development of the animal body plan was (and is) controlled by large and complex gene regulatory networks. It follows that evolution of body plans corresponded to adpative changes in the architecture of these developmental gene regulatory networks. The many components of these networks evolve at different rates and in different ways, and are very much dependent on selection pressures from changing environments. It is often hypothsized that animal evolution established essentially all phylum-level body plans by the early Cambrian. If so, it follows that certain components of the networks that were essential became immune to change. These highly conserved network components may well have originated in the Precambrian.

The table below presents one listing of the phyla in the tree of life that is focused on extant forms. Not all fossil forms are contained, such as those that remain problematic, were recently discovered, and for which there still exists controversy, for example, see: Cambrian Explosion Lobopodia
