The analysis of ontogenetic trajectories: When a change in size or shape is not heterochrony
While James's "cross-cuts" mirror the dissociations of heterochrony
, their results (creative genius, divine inspiration) mirror de Beer's theory of clandestine evolution.
The ontogeny of Pseudis platensis (Anura, Hylidae): Heterochrony
and the effect of larval development on postmetamorphic life.
With the exception of Brassicaceae, Brassicales are not exceptional among angiosperm orders in their degree of heterochrony
Analyses of ontogeny restricted to a single species are not enough to explain the direction of evolutionary change in certain structures within taxonomic groups; these analyses also cannot define the growth of a structure as paedomorphic or peramorphic, leaving the realm of heterochrony
The ability to exhibit such heterochrony
in life history processes has played an important role in the evolution of many groups of salamanders, including the members of the Ambystomatidae, and more specifically, certain members of the tiger salamander complex (Collins, 1981; Routman, 1993; Whiteman et al.
2013): Ontogeny in the tube-crested dinosaur Parasaurolophus (Hadrosauridae) and heterochrony
High levels of diversity in frogs have been attributed to two general mechanisms: (1) the evolution of a dramatic metamorphosis between larval and adult stages which potentially frees each stage to evolve relatively independently (Haas, 2001: Svensson and Haas, 2005), (2) heterochrony
where features shift in their relative timing of development with respect to other features (Fabrezi and Quinzio, 2008; Fabrezi and Lobo, 2009; Vera-Candioti et al.
