Значение термина neoteny в knolik

neoteny - neoteny
neoteny - Persistence of the form of a larval or of other early stage of development. Either temporary, e.g. climatically delayed development; or permanent, in which case the animal must breed in juvenile form (paedogenesis, e.g. axolotl, and many other animals which as adults resemble juvenile stages of related species). Neo-teny may be applied to retarded development of individual structure, e.g. ostrich feathers resembling down-feathers of flying birds. Neoteny has probably been very important in evolution of many groups, including man, who has resemblances to young stages of apes.
