Explosive Evolutionary Radiations: Decreasing Speciation or Increasing Extinction Through Time?
Abstract A common pattern in time-calibrated molecular phylogenies is a signal of rapid diversification early in the history of a radiation. Because the net rate of diversification is the differenceExpand

Evidence from both molecular phylogenies and the fossil record suggests that rates of species diversification often decline through time during evolutionary radiations. One proposed explanation forExpand

Analysis and visualization of complex macroevolutionary dynamics: an example from Australian scincid lizards.
The correlation between species diversification and morphological evolution has long been of interest in evolutionary biology. We investigated the relationship between these processes during theExpand

Molecular Markers, Natural History, and Evolution. 2nd edition
Abstract The following critiques express the opinions of the individual evaluators regarding the strengths, weaknesses, and value of the books they review. As such, the appraisals are subjectiveExpand

The roles of island area per se and habitat diversity in the species-area relationships of four Lesser Antillean faunal groups
Summary 1. We analysed the relationships between species richness, island area, and habitat diversity for birds, bats, butterflies, and reptiles and amphibians on 19 islands in the Lesser Antilles.Expand

Exceptional among-lineage variation in diversification rates during the radiation of Australia's most diverse vertebrate clade
The disparity in species richness among groups of organisms is one of the most pervasive features of life on earth. A number of studies have addressed this pattern across higher taxa (e.g.Expand

Congruent population structure inferred from dispersal behaviour and intensive genetic surveys of the threatened Florida scrub‐jay (Aphelocoma cœrulescens)
The delimitation of populations, defined as groups of individuals linked by gene flow, is possible by the analysis of genetic markers and also by spatial models based on dispersal probabilitiesExpand

Explosive speciation in the New World Dendroica warblers
The 27 species of Dendroica wood-warblers represent North America's most spectacular avian adaptive radiation. Dendroica species exhibit high levels of local sympatry and differ in plumage and song,Expand

Dynamic Paternity Allocation as a Function of Male Plumage Color in Barn Swallows
Paternity in male animals can be influenced by their phenotypic signals of quality. Accordingly, the behavior underlying patterns of paternity should be flexible as signals of quality change. ToExpand

A comprehensive multilocus phylogeny for the wood-warblers and a revised classification of the Parulidae (Aves).
The birds in the family Parulidae-commonly termed the New World warblers or wood-warblers-are a classic model radiation for studies of ecological and behavioral differentiation. Although theExpand
