Interpreting the evolutionary regression: the interplay between observational and biological errors in phylogenetic comparative studies.

Abstract

Regressions of biological variables across species are rarely perfect. Usually, there are residual deviations from the estimated model relationship, and such deviations commonly show a pattern of phylogenetic correlations indicating that they have biological causes. We discuss the origins and effects of phylogenetically correlated biological variation in… (More)
