In science:

However, as it is a novel design, it will be important to acquire operational experience of a MAPS calorimeter. The second fabrication round in 2008 will produce larger sensors of size 20×20mm2 (limited by the size of a standard CMOS reticule without using stitching) in a dedicated run.

Reticulate evolution is rare in animals but can occur in plants where hybridization between distinct species and even distinct genera is possible.
Does Meaning Evolve?
Thus reticulate evolution between word meaning is not possible for natural languages.
Does Meaning Evolve?
This naive view of speciation does not always hold, see the remarks on reticulate evolution at the end of §3.1, the difference is more one of degree rather than an absolute, there can be fusion between species.
Does Meaning Evolve?
Reticulate evolution can only occur in a formal language for an individual user where it can be introduced by fiat; this cannot happen for a language community using a formal language or for natural languages.
