It was assumed that lineages with more than five digits no longer exist but investigations of clawed-frogs now indicate that they posses a rudimentary or atavistic sixth digit in their hindlimb. A recent reevaluation of the stem tetrapod Ichthyostega predicts that its seven digits evolved from two different types of ancestral fin radials, pre-axial and post-axial. In this context we now ask the question, should we consider a pre-axial origin of the thumb as reason for its unique genetic signature?</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Meyer, Axel</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Woltering, Joost M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-11-18T13:25:25Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
