Data from: Constraint and opportunity: the genetic basis and evolution of modularity in the cichlid mandible

Kevin J. Parsons, Eladio Márquez & R. Craig Albertson
Modular variation, whereby the relative degree of connectivity varies within a system, is sometimes thought to evolve through natural selection. In this way, modularity may facilitate evolution. Alternatively, conserved patterns of modularity may act to constrain evolution by preventing certain functions from evolving. A comprehensive understanding of the interplay between these phenomena will require knowledge of both the inheritance and genetic basis of modularity. Here we explore these ideas in the cichlid mandible by investigating...
