The level of integration present among organismal traits is thought to influence evolutionary potential, and this potential should be affected by the type or types of integration displayed (e.g., functional, developmental, or genetic). Morphological integration is generally high among functionally related traits, but whether this is predominantly determined by genetic architecture, or is instead a result of biomechanical remodeling during development remains poorly understood. We examine this… CONTINUE READING
