Identification of the events responsible for rapid morphological variation during evolution can help understand how developmental processes are changed by genetic modifications and thus produce diverse body features and shapes. Sex combs, a sexually dimorphic structure, show considerable variation in morphology and numbers among males from related species… CONTINUE READING
