Tetrapods that have evolved the ability to run or bound at great speeds over long distances have repeatedly converged on specific morphological limb adaptations, including the loss of lateral digits, elongation of limb segments, and fusion of individual elements. Many of the more familiar cursorial animals, such as horses and deer, are large and do not lend themselves well to experimental embryonic analyses. However, a group of lesser-known bipedal rodents, the three-toed jerboas, has become an… CONTINUE READING
