Transcriptomic and macroevolutionary evidence for phenotypic uncoupling between frog life history phases
Nature Communications, Published online: 15 May 2017; doi:10.1038/ncomms15213
In animals with complex life cycles, selection on one life phase may constrain adaptation in another phase. Here the authors find that, during the adaptive radiation of mantellid frogs, the evolution of tadpole and adult morphologies has been uncoupled through phase-specific gene expression.
