David C. Gibbs and Kathleen Donohue Gene duplication and the environmental regulation of physiology and development Ecology and Evolution 4
This article presents results of a model of environmental regulation of development with gene duplication. The model explores how organisms regulate developmental or physiological processes so that they occur under the broadest range of permissive conditions. Results show that gene duplication can permit the precise environmental regulation of a process, but avoid the cost of preventing it from occurring under potentially suitable conditions.
