    PLoS ONE 4:e7957. 2009
    ..Therefore, without meeting a set of a priori requirements regarding data structure the ordered-axis plot approach will likely produce misleading results...

    Kevin J Parsons
    Department of Biology, Syracuse University, 107 College Place, Syracuse, NY 13244, USA
    Int J Evol Biol 2011:641501. 2011
    ..These findings provide the basis for further experimental research involving the determination of the developmental and genetic bases of these patterns of modularity...

    R Craig Albertson
    Department of Biology, University of Massachusetts Amherst, 611 North Pleasant Street, Amherst, MA 01003, USA
    Int J Evol Biol 2012:538146. 2012
    ..Overall, these data suggest that the internal structure of the cichlid maxilla has a tractable genetic basis and that discrete shifts in this trait have accompanied the evolution of alternate feeding modes...

    Mark W Westneat
    Department of Zoology, Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, IL 60605, USA
    Science 299:558-60. 2003
    ..Body movements and hemolymph circulation cannot account for these cycles; therefore, our observations demonstrate a previously unknown mechanism of respiration in insects analogous to the inflation and deflation of vertebrate lungs...
