The effect of key innovations (e.g., phytophagy in insects, Mitter et al. 1988; viviparity in fishes, Slowinski and Guyer 1993) on speciation rates has been a major focus of evolutionary biology in recent years (Sanderson and Donoghue 1996). Much of the apparent variability in species number might be consistent with simple stochastic models of phylogenesis, since all degrees of species diversity are equally likely under a null model of random speciation and extinction (Farris 1976; Slowinski… CONTINUE READING
