Retracted: Evolution and development of the homocercal caudal fin in teleosts

  title={Retracted: Evolution and development of the homocercal caudal fin in teleosts},
  author={Yuuta Moriyama and H. Takeda},
The vertebrate caudal skeleton is one of the most innovative structures in vertebrate evolution and has been regarded as an excellent model for functional morphology, a discipline that relates a structure to its function. Teleosts have an internally‐asymmetrical caudal fin, called the homocercal caudal fin, formed by the upward bending of the caudal‐most portion of the body axis, the ural region. This homocercal type of the caudal fin ensures powerful and complex locomotion and is thought to be… Expand
