On morphological clocks and paleophylogeography: towards a timescale for Sorex hybrid zones

  title={On morphological clocks and paleophylogeography: towards a timescale for Sorex hybrid zones},
  author={P David Polly},
Phylogeography – the study of within-species phylogenetic and geographic divergence – has been primarily the domain of molecular evolutionists because molecular markers record population structure on smaller scales than do traditional morphological traits. But when geometric morphometrics are combined with distance-based phylogenetics molar shape divergence appears to record population-level phylogeny, a fact that allows extant and fossil populations to be combined in a single phylogeographic… CONTINUE READING
