Maini, P. K. (1991) A comparison of reaction diffusion and mechanochemical models for limb development. In: Developmental Patterning of the Vertebrate Limb. n/a, n/a (n/a). Plenum Press, New York, USA, pp. 161-163.
Several theoretical models have been proposed to attempt to elucidate the underlying mechanisms involved in the spatial patterning of skeletal elements in the limb. Here, I briefly compare two such models - reaction diffusion (RD) and mechanochemical (MC) - and highlight their properties and predictions.
