Schematic diagram showing the process of defense morph formation with the putative involved genes and biological pathways suggested by the present study. DD1 is thought to be involved in kairomone reception and/or fate determination during the embryonic stage. The other genes are considered to be involved in the morphogenesis of postembryonic juveniles.
