Ongoing debate centers around whether these regressive traits arise as the result of neutral evolutionary processes, or rather by natural selection of "constructive" traits that arise at the expense of eyes and pigmentation. Recent research on cavefish points to the latter, suggesting that the "constructive" trait vibrational attractive behavior and the reduction of eye size may share a common genetic basis.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2013</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Trade-offs in cavefish sensory capacity</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Axel</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gunter, Helen</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
