I present a new statistical method for analysing the relationship between two discrete characters that are measured across a group of hierarchically evolved species or populations. The method

Adenia (Passifloraceae) and Its Adaptive Radiation: Phylogeny and Growth form Diversification

The rapid diversification rates, fast morphological transitions, and multiple origins of waterstorage tissue in roots and shoots are hypothesized to result from a shared developmental program for water storage tissue that is flexibly turned on and off during evolution in stems and roots.

Diversity and plasticity of C4 photosynthesis in Eleocharis (Cyperaceae).

The culm anatomy and photosynthetic property of several Eleocharis species grown terrestrially and the changes in the newly produced culms over a short period time frame after switching from terrestrial to submerged condition are examined.

The interaction between developmental bias and natural selection: from centipede segments to a general hypothesis

Here, the key concept of developmental bias is examined, which encompasses both developmental constraint and developmental drive, and how it is their interaction, rather than either process on its own, that determines evolutionary direction.

Mapping mutations on phylogenies.

A Bayesian method for mapping mutations on a phylogeny and a method for simulating a mapping from the posterior distribution of mappings is presented, and the utility of the method is illustrated on two previously published data sets.

Stochastic mapping of morphological characters.

The utility of the method described by Nielsen to the mapping of morphological characters under continuous-time Markov models for mapping characters on trees and for identifying character correlation is demonstrated.
