- Precisely proportioned: intertidal barnacles alter penis form to suit coastal wave actionChristopher J Neufeld
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada T6G 2E9
Proc Biol Sci 275:1081-7. 2008..This dramatic plasticity in genital form is a valuable reminder that factors other than the usual drivers of genital diversification--female choice, sexual conflict and male-male competition--can influence genital form...
- Experimental evidence for latent developmental plasticity: intertidal whelks respond to a native but not an introduced predatorTimothy C Edgell
Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, Bamfield, BC, Canada
Biol Lett 4:385-7. 2008..Such coupling of latent plasticity to a novel cue -- via genetic changes or associative learning -- could explain many cases of rapid phenotypic change following a sudden shift in the environment...
