They found that for highly specialised skulls, such as those for feeding on nectar or blood, a process called heterochrony
strongly influenced their development.
and allometry: the analysis of evolutionary change in ontogeny.
Ontogenetic allometry, heterochrony

Protracted juvenilism (heterochrony
, paedomorphosis, or neoteny of various authors) is a feature of angiosperm woods almost exclusively.
is greatly important to determine developmental timing of reproductive and somatic gene expressions (Gould 1977), and has been considered an important mechanism in the evolution of the Copepoda (Huys and Boxshall 1991).
