- Natural selection and developmental constraints in the evolution of allometriesW Anthony Frankino
Section of Evolutionary Biology, Institute of Biology, Leiden University, P O Box 9516, 2300 RA Leiden, Netherlands
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...
- Internal and external constraints in the evolution of morphological allometries in a butterflyW 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...
- Size and shape: the developmental regulation of static allometry in insectsAlexander W Shingleton
Department of Zoology, Michigan State University, 203 Natural Science, East Lansing, MI 48910, USA
Bioessays 29:536-48. 2007..This model serves as the foundation for a research program that will result in a deeper understanding of the relationship between growth and form, a question that has fascinated biologists for centuries...
