SYNOPSIS. Viviparity has evolved many times in many lineages of vertebrates. Many evolutionary scenarios for the evolution of viviparity, or structures associated with it, have been proposed. Many of these are testable using methodologies developed recently. Some structures that facilitate viviparity (e.g., corpora lutea and oviducts) are homologous, for… CONTINUE READING
