Phenotypic Integration Patterns Support an Account of Homology as a Manifestation of Evolvability

Abstract

Data gleaned from the study of phenotypic integration provide important empirical support for a recent theoretical advance in evolutionary developmental biology, in which the phenomenon of homology is construed as an aspect of evolvability. The presence of highly conserved phenotypic covariation structure among distantly related taxa suggests the action of… (More)
