Experimental embryology provides a means for exploring the intrinsic mechanisms that underlie morphological evolution. This paper will discuss experimental results that explore the evolutionary significance of Hox gene expression in the patterning of the anterior-posterior (AP) axis in vertebrates. The detailed experiments are reported elsewhere (Nowicki and Burke, 2000). This paper will focus on a discussion of their relevance to understanding the role developmental mechanisms play in generating axial pattern, and how those mechanisms may act as nodal points in the evolution of morphology.
