Recent innovations in phylogenetic comparative methods (PCMs) have spurred a renaissance of research into the causes and consequences of large‐scale patterns of biodiversity. In this paper, we review these advances. We also highlight the potential of comparative methods to integrate across fields and focus on three examples where such integration might be particularly valuable: quantitative genetics, community ecology, and paleobiology. We argue that PCMs will continue to be a key set of tools… Expand
Climatic niches in phylogenetic comparative studies: a review of challenges and approaches
TLDR
The common evolutionary models and available model-fitting methods are outlined and the procedure for ancestral niche reconstruction is described with the intention to give a broad overview and highlight the most advanced approaches for optimal niche-related comparative studies. Expand
Integrating Paleontological and Phylogenetic Approaches to Macroevolution
With proliferation of molecular phylogenies and advances in statistical modeling, phylogeneticists can now address macroevolutionary questions that had traditionally been the purview of paleontology.Expand
Evolution in a Community Context: On Integrating Ecological Interactions and Macroevolution.
TLDR
It is argued that, despite inherent challenges associated with reconstructing historical processes, the interplay of ecology and evolution is central to the authors' understanding of macroevolution and community coexistence, and cannot be safely ignored in community and comparative phylogenetic studies.

TLDR
A major challenge ahead is to develop models that more explicitly take into account ecology, in particular the interaction of species with each other and with their environment, to improve the understanding of diversification. Expand
The interaction of phylogeny and community structure: Linking the community composition and trait evolution of clades
Community phylogenetics (ecophylogenetics) represents an attempt to link the evolutionary history of species to their present‐day eco‐ logical interactions (Cavender‐Bares, Kozak, Fine, & Kembel,Expand
Embracing heterogeneity: coalescing the Tree of Life and the future of phylogenomics
TLDR
It is argued that phylogenomics stands to benefit by embracing the many heterogeneous genomic signals emerging from the first decade of large-scale phylogenetic analysis spawned by high-throughput sequencing (HTS), and that an integrative cyberinfrastructure linking all steps of the process of building the ToL, from specimen acquisition in the field to publication and tracking of phylogenomic data, are essential for progress.

Leveraging contemporary species introductions to test phylogenetic hypotheses of trait evolution.
TLDR
This work reviews phylogenetic and contemporary studies of trait evolution and identifies areas of overlap and areas for further integration. Expand
The geography of phylogenetic paleoecology: integrating data and methods to better understand biotic response to climate change
Abstract. Deeper knowledge about how species and communities respond to climate change and environmental gradients should be supported by evidence from the past, especially as modern responses areExpand
Geographic Range Dynamics Drove Ancient Hybridization in a Lineage of Angiosperms
TLDR
This work links previous advances in phyloclimatic modeling to develop a framework that overcomes existing methodological gaps by predicting potential ecological and geographic overlap directly from estimated ancestral trait distributions and demonstrates an application of ancestral state reconstruction to assess geographic range dynamics in a lineage lacking a fossil record.

Macroevolutionary perspectives to environmental change.
TLDR
This work builds on research in palaeontology and recent developments in phylogenetic approaches to ask how macroevolution can help us understand how environmental changes have affected biodiversity in the past, and how they will affect biodiversity inThe future. Expand
Phylogenies and Community Ecology
TLDR
A common pattern of phylogenetic conservatism in ecological character is recognized and the challenges of using phylogenies of partial lineages are highlighted and phylogenetic approaches to three emergent properties of communities: species diversity, relative abundance distributions, and range sizes are reviewed.

Reinventing species selection with molecular phylogenies.
TLDR
It is argued that modern studies of diversification rates demonstrate that species selection is an important process influencing both the evolution of biological diversity and distributions of phenotypic traits within higher taxa. Expand

TLDR
Several key areas are reviewed in which phylogenetic information helps to resolve long-standing controversies in community ecology, challenges previous assumptions, and opens new areas of investigation. Expand

Based on Ornstein-Uhlenbeck models of adaptive evolution, a method is presented in which multiple traits evolve both in response to each other and to fixed or randomly evolving predictor variables, enabling the study of allometric and adaptive relationships between traits. Expand

A heuristical framework to merge these two fields into “metacommunity phylogenetics” is described, to provide a way to think about how niche properties of species arranged across the environment and different spatial scales influence the process of community assembly. Expand
