APE: Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution in R language
UNLABELLED Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution (APE) is a package written in the R language for use in molecular evolution and phylogenetics. APE provides both utility functions for reading andExpand
A unifying model for the analysis of phenotypic, genetic, and geographic data.
TLDR
A statistical model with a double original advantage that incorporates information about the spatial distribution of the samples, with the aim to increase inference power and to relate more explicitly observed patterns to geography, which allows one to analyze genetic and phenotypic data within a unified model and inference framework. Expand
Analysis of comparative data using generalized estimating equations.
TLDR
A new method is introduced, based on the use of generalized estimating equations (GEE), for the analysis of comparative data, to incorporate a correlation matrix that specifies the dependence among observations in the phylogenetic tree of the studied species. Expand
A geometric morphometric assessment of the effects of environment and cladogenesis on the evolution of the turtle shell
TLDR
The assessment of the homoplasy due to environment and of the pattern of morphological variability suggests that the carapace has undergone similar morphological changes between aquatic and terrestrial environments within the two clades of the Testudinoidea. Expand
EARLY EOCENE TESTUDINOID TURTLES FROM SAINT-PAPOUL, FRANCE, WITH COMMENTS ON THE EARLY EVOLUTION OF MODERN TESTUDINOIDEA
The description of three Early Eocene fossil turtle species from southern France illustrates the early Eocene radiation of the Testudinoidea, the largest group of living turtles. Two species of theExpand
Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution
Ecological correlates and evolutionary divergence in the skull of turtles: a geometric morphometric assessment.
TLDR
The adaptive radiation of the Testudinoidea is revealed to demonstrate a clear relationship between the skull shape and life style, and it is revealed that morphological specialization was related to both diet and habitat. Expand
Dating cryptodiran nodes: origin and diversification of the turtle superfamily Testudinoidea.
TLDR
The results revealed that the earliest divergences within crown testudinoids occurred around 95.0 Mya, in the early Late Cretaceous, earlier than previously reported, raising new questions about the historical biogeography of this group. Expand
Log-Shape Ratios, Procrustes Superimposition, Elliptic Fourier Analysis: Three Worked Examples in R
TLDR
R routines that perform various morphometric analysis in the context of rodent systematics are used and it is shown that filtering allometry using the approach of Burnaby (1966) can improve the discrimination between species. Expand
Turtle assemblages of the Khorat Group (Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous) of NE Thailand and their palaeobiogeographical significance
Abstract The turtle assemblages from the Khorat Group consist mainly of trionychoids. They include the primitive Trionychoidae Basilochelys and basal eucryptodiran turtles from the Phu KradungExpand
