SUMMARY Over the past two decades, comparative biological analyses have undergone profound changes with the incorporation of rigorous evolutionary perspectives and phylogenetic information. This change followed in large part from the realization that traditional methods of statistical analysis tacitly assumed independence of all observations, when in fact biological groups such as species are differentially related to each other according to their evolutionary history. New phylogenetically… Expand
Phylogenetic analyses: comparing species to infer adaptations and physiological mechanisms.
TLDR
An overview of phylogenetic approaches and their importance for studying the evolution of physiological processes and mechanisms is provided, and the conceptual framework underlying these methods are discussed, and when and how phylogenetic information should be employed are explained. Expand
Putting phylogeny into the analysis of biological traits: a methodological approach.
TLDR
This paper presents a method for identifying evolutionary strategies from large sets of biological traits, using phylogeny as a source of meaningful historical and ecological information, and extends a multivariate method developed for the analysis of spatial patterns that relies on finding combinations of traits that are phylogenetically autocorrelated. Expand
Use and Misuse of Comparative Methods in the Study of Adaptation
The comparative method can be used to test hypotheses of adaptation by comparing groups of species that meet different adaptive challenges. This requires attention to phylogenetic correlations and toExpand
Phylogenetic Targeting of Research Effort in Evolutionary Biology
TLDR
Phylogenetic targeting selects potential candidates for future data collection, using a flexible scoring system based on differences in pairwise comparisons, and increases the statistical power to detect correlations and that power increased with the number of species in the tree. Expand
Modeling body size evolution in Felidae under alternative phylogenetic hypotheses
TLDR
This work used phylogenetic correlograms and phylogenetic eigenvector regression to model body size evolution in 35 worldwide Felidae species using two alternative phylogenies and published body size data, indicating that both these models explained phylogenetic structures in trait variation. Expand
Special care is needed in applying phylogenetic comparative methods to gene trees with speciation and duplication nodes
TLDR
Controlling for biases allows to successfully use phylogenetic methods to study the evolution of gene function, and provides some support for the ortholog conjecture using three different phylogenetic approaches. Expand
Revisiting a Key Innovation in Evolutionary Biology: Felsenstein’s “Phylogenies and the Comparative Method”
TLDR
A personal review of comparative biology before, during, and after Joe’s article is presented, which append a perspective written by Joe himself that describes how his article evolved, unedited transcripts of reviews of his submitted manuscript, and a guide to some nontrivial calculations. Expand

TLDR
This book represents a snapshot of the current state of affairs in phylogenetic statistical methods, providing a compilation of chapters written by authors who include several of the leading figures in the area. Expand
A Bayesian extension of phylogenetic generalized least squares: Incorporating uncertainty in the comparative study of trait relationships and evolutionary rates
TLDR
This paper shows how Bayesian statistics facilitates this task while relaxing the homogeneous rate assumption of the well‐known phylogenetic generalized least squares (PGLS) framework, and shows its usefulness by exploring the coevolution of ankle posture and forefoot proportions in Carnivora.

TLDR
Phylogenetically controlled studies across multiple species correct for taxonomic confounds in physiological performance traits and combining these complementary approaches will help integrating biology. Expand

TLDR
Interspecific comparison has a long and productive history in physiology, and several new statistical methods correct for problems caused by phylogenetic relatedness and descent with modification, the most common being phylogenetically independent contrasts. Expand
Phylogenies and the Comparative Method: A General Approach to Incorporating Phylogenetic Information into the Analysis of Interspecific Data
TLDR
A generalized linear model (GLM) is presented for the analysis of comparative data, which can be used to address questions regarding the relationship between traits or between traits and environments, the rate of phenotypic evolution, the degree of phylogenetic effect, and the ancestral state of a character. Expand
An Introduction to Phylogenetically Based Statistical Methods, with a New Method for Confidence Intervals on Ancestral Values
TLDR
Three phylogenetically based statistical methods are presented, including phylogenetically independent contrasts, Monte Carlo computer simulations to obtain null distributions of test statistics, and phylogenetic autocorrelation, which allow traditional topics in comparative and ecological physiology to be addressed with greater rigor. Expand
Rapidly evolving traits and the comparative method: how important is testing for phylogenetic signal?
TLDR
It is shown that the bird song parameters investigated are not correlated to their phylogenetic history, indicating that certain aspects of bird song can be subject to rates of evolution that are much more rapid than speciation events. Expand
Phylogenetic Analysis and Comparative Data: A Test and Review of Evidence
TLDR
Simulations show λ to be a statistically powerful index for measuring whether data exhibit phylogenetic dependence or not and whether it has low rates of Type I error, which demonstrates that even partial information on phylogeny will improve the accuracy of phylogenetic analyses. Expand
PHYLOGENY AND COADAPTATION OF THERMAL PHYSIOLOGY IN LIZARDS: A REANALYSIS
TLDR
A phylogenetic approach was developed, overlaying the thermal data on a phylogeny of the six genera and applying a "minimum evolution" algorithm to estimate ancestral values at nodes, which concluded that thermoregulatory behavior and physiology were at least partially coadapted. Expand
Truth or Consequences: Effects of Phylogenetic Accuracy on Two Comparative Methods
TLDR
Simulations show independent contrasts to be valid when branch lengths are known, whether or not the topology is known fully, and how the two approaches stand up to incompletely resolved trees and incorrect branch length information—common situations for comparative biologists. Expand
New Directions in Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry: Mechanisms, Adaptations, and Evolution
TLDR
New and more sophisticated applications of this approach, together with progress in understanding both animal phylogeny and mechanisms/adaptations, all promise to allow us to fulfill the authors' second historic goal. Expand
DETECTING CORRELATION BETWEEN CHARACTERS IN A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS WITH UNCERTAIN PHYLOGENY
The importance of accommodating the phylogenetic history of a group when performing a comparative analysis is now widely recognized. The typical approaches either assume the tree is known withoutExpand
Applications of phylogenetically independent contrasts : a mixed progress report
TLDR
It is argued that it is premature at this point to insist upon particular phylogenetically based approaches to comparative analysis, even though pressure is mounting to reject conventional practices of calculating regressions and correlations from trait values of taxa in favor of PICs. Expand
