  • Current theory concerning the origin and evolution of lactation is modified only slightly from that proposed by Darwin in 1859 (see Long 1969). Long (1972) summarized the major phases as: (1) evolution in mammallike reptiles of a vascularized incubation area, following attainment of homeothermy; (2) preadaptive utilization of cutaneous secretions from such a richly vascularized area for adherence of eggs, or, more likely, for essential moisture; (3) evolution of the marn supium; (4) utilization… CONTINUE READING
