  1. pmc Natural selection and developmental constraints in the evolution of allometries
    W Anthony Frankino

    Science 307:718-20. 2005
    ..Our results show that the short-term evolution of allometries is not limited by developmental constraints. Instead, scaling relationships are shaped by strong natural selection...

    W Anthony Frankino
    Institute of Biology, Leiden University, PO Box 9516, 2300 RA Leiden, The Netherlands
    Evolution 61:2958-70. 2007
    ..Our results demonstrate that evolution of this component of the forewing-hindwing allometry is not limited by developmental constraints in the short term and that natural selection on allometry intercepts can be powerful...
