Functional adaptation underpinned the evolutionary assembly of the earliest vertebrate skeleton

Abstract:

Conodonts are the first vertebrates to bear a mineralized skeleton, restricted to an array of tooth‐like feeding elements. The functional implications for the development of tooth‐like elements differentiated into two tissues is tested using 2D finite element modeling, mapping the patterns of stress and strain that elements with differing material properties exhibited during function. Addition of a stiff crown does not change the patterns of stress, rather it reduces the deformation of the el...
