  • The evolutionary integration of complex morphological structures is a macroevolutionary pattern in which morphogenetic components evolve in a coordinated fashion, which can result from the interplay among processes of developmental, genetic integration, and different types of selection. We tested hypotheses of ecological versus developmental factors underlying patterns of within‐species and evolutionary integration in the mandible of phyllostomid bats, during the most impressive ecological and… CONTINUE READING
