BACKGROUND Despite the rising interest in homeotic genes, little has been known about the course and pattern of evolution of homeotic traits across the mammalian radiation. An array of emerging and diversifying homeotic gradients revealed by this study appear to generate new body plans and drive evolution at a large scale. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS This study identifies and evaluates a set of homeotic gradients across 250 extant and fossil mammalian species and their antecedents over a… CONTINUE READING
