The concept of the key innovation has been central to discussions of specialization and adaptive radiation in herbivorous insects. Rarely, however, have key innovations been defined mechanistically; typically, a key innovation is described broadly as a complex suite of traits (e.g., the ability to feed on angiosperm plants). Identifying the molecular genetic basis for individual traits that collectively characterize such key innovations can be useful in determining whether all species within a… CONTINUE READING
