Evolutionary Divergence and Convergence in Shape and Size Within African Antelope Proximal Phalanges

Louys, Julien; Montanari, Shaena; Plummer, Thomas; Hertel, Fritz; Bishop, Laura

Description

Morphological convergence amongst species inhabiting similar environments but having different evolutionary histories is a concept central to evolutionary biology. Cases of divergent evolution, where there is morphological divergence between closely related species exploiting different environments, are less well studied. Here we show divergent evolution in the morphology of the proximal phalanges of several closely related African antelope species inhabiting different environments. This...[Show more]
