Center for Population Biology, Department of Evolution and Ecology, University of California Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 31:754-64. 2004..Our results indicate the 5-million-year-old extension of the Mexican Neovolcanic Plateau to the Gulf Coast of Mexico has strongly influenced the current transition between the vertebrate faunas of the Neotropics and Nearctic...

- Function of a key morphological innovation: fusion of the cichlid pharyngeal jawC Darrin Hulsey
Center for Population Biology, University of California, Davis, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Proc Biol Sci 273:669-75. 2006..Throughout cichlid diversification, increased pharyngeal jaw fusion via suturing has likely helped to reinforce the LPJ during pharyngeal processing thereby facilitating the ability of cichlids to exploit durable prey...
- Micro- and macroevolutionary decoupling of cichlid jaws: a test of Liem's key innovation hypothesisC D Hulsey
Department of Biology, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia 30332, USA
Evolution 60:2096-109. 2006..Evolutionary decoupling of oral and pharyngeal jaw mechanics has likely played a critical role in the unparalleled trophic diversification of cichlid fishes...
- Do constructional constraints influence cichlid craniofacial diversification?C D Hulsey
School of Biology and Petit Institute of Bioengineering and Bioscience, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332, USA
Proc Biol Sci 274:1867-75. 2007..The comparative approach used here should provide a robust method to test whether constructional constraints frequently limit phenotypic change in adaptive radiations...
- An ancient gene network is co-opted for teeth on old and new jawsGareth J Fraser
Parker H Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences and School of Biology, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
PLoS Biol 7:e31. 2009..Our data highlight an amazing modularity of jaws and teeth as they coevolved during the history of vertebrates. We exploit this diversity to infer a core dental gene network, common to the first tooth and all of its descendants...
- Hybridization produces novelty when the mapping of form to function is many to oneNicholas F Parnell

BMC Evol Biol 8:122. 2008..e., the degree of MTOM). We fuse these research themes by considering the influence of MTOM on the production of transgressive jaw biomechanics in simulated hybrids between Lake Malawi cichlid species...
- The genetic basis of a complex functional systemNicholas F Parnell
School of Biology, Institute of Bioengineering and Bioscience, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia 30332, USA
Evolution 66:3352-66. 2012..Genetic linkage between components of the simple and complex systems partly explains phenotypic correlations and may constrain functional evolution...

Section of Evolution and Ecology, Center for Population Biology, Storer Hall, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
Am Nat 161:1-28. 2003..Our collection of case studies suggests that individual specialization is a widespread but underappreciated phenomenon that poses many important but unanswered questions...
- Biomechanical trade-offs bias rates of evolution in the feeding apparatus of fishesRoi Holzman

- Projecting mechanics into morphospace: disparity in the feeding system of labrid fishesC Darrin Hulsey
Center for Population Biology, and Section of Evolution and Ecology, University of California at Davis, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Proc Biol Sci 269:317-26. 2002..These results illustrate that without an explicit interpretation of the consequences of per unit change in morphology, conclusions about diversification drawn only from morphological disparity may be misleading...
