Abstract

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.
