- ‘This later result indicates that expression of paedomorphosis is associated with genetic changes that alter developmental timing.’
- ‘At a higher level, it is considered that vertebrates might have arisen from the pelagic larva of a tunicate-like organism by paedomorphosis, causing the retention of the larval characters into the adult phase.’
