Rapid transition towards the Division of Labor via evolution of developmental plasticity

PLoS Computational Biology

Jun 16, 2010

S Gavrilets

Abstract

A crucial step in several major evolutionary transitions is the division of labor between components of the emerging higher-level evolutionary unit. Examples include the separation of germ and soma in simple multicellular organisms, appearance of multiple cell types and organs in more c...read more
