Phenotypes reflect a complex interplay between the direct and indirect effects of multiple selective pressures; adaptive responses in individual traits may therefore be constrained by architectonic considerations and correlations with other traits. We explored whether and how three suites of neighbouring structures (respiratory, trophic and cranial) have changed over time in Rastrineobola argentea, a small pelagic cyprinid fish that is endemic to the Lake Victoria Basin in East Africa. We… CONTINUE READING
