As species evolve along a phylogenetic tree, we expect closely related species to retain some phenotypic similarities due to their shared evolutionary histories. The amount of expected similarity depends both on the hierarchical phylogenetic structure, and on the specific magnitude and types of evolutionary changes that accumulate during each generation. In this study, we show how models of microevolutionary change can be translated into the resulting macroevolutionary patterns. We illustrate… Expand

TLDR
A general framework that can be used to translate between macroevolutionary patterns and the underlying microevolutionARY process is reviewed by comparing the observed relationships among measured species phenotypes and the expected relationship structure due to the phylogeny and underlying models of phenotypic evolution. Expand
Linking micro and macroevolution in the presence of migration.
TLDR
The goal is to reconcile the processes of micro and macroevolution by modelling migration as part of the speciation process by introducing an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck model where migration happens between two subpopulations within a branch of a phylogeny and this migration decreases over time as it happens during speciation. Expand
Linking micro and macroevolution in the presence of migration
TLDR
An OU model where migration happens between two subpopulations within a branch of a phylogeny and this migration decreases over time as it happens during speciation is introduced, further proof that not accounting for gene flow has important consequences in inferences at both the micro and macroevolutionary scale. Expand
MIPoD: A Hypothesis‐Testing Framework for Microevolutionary Inference from Patterns of Divergence
TLDR
This work assesses the departure from neutrality, and thus the role of different types of selection and other forces, in a stepwise hypothesis‐testing procedure based on parameters for the size, shape, and orientation of G. Expand
Patterns and correlates of ecomorphological diversification in birds
TLDR
The patterns and correlates of ecomorphological diversification across the most diverse radiation among the tetrapods - birds are investigated, and key ecological processes can explain variation in how biodiversity accumulates in deep time. Expand
A Unifying Comparative Phylogenetic Framework Including Traits Coevolving Across Interacting Lineages.
TLDR
A very general comparative phylogenetic framework for (multi)-trait evolution that can be applied to both ultrametric and nonultrametric trees and paves the way for the consideration of a much broader series of models in which lineages coevolve, meaning that trait changes in one lineage are influenced by the value of traits in other, interacting lineages.

An introduction to microevolution: rate, pattern, process
This special issue of Genetica brings together a diverse collection of contributions that examine evolution within and among populations (i.e., microevolution), and the role that microevolution playsExpand

System drift and speciation
TLDR
This model uses quantitative genetics and linear system theory to study how a gene network underlying a conserved phenotype evolves, as the genetic drift of small changes to these molecular pathways cause a population to explore the set of mechanisms with identical phenotypes. Expand
Inferring evolutionary processes from phylogenies
TLDR
A set of maximum likelihood statistical methods for inferring historical evolutionary processes and anticipating the wealth of information becoming available to biological scientists from genetic studies that pin down relationships among organisms with unprecedented accuracy are described. Expand

QUANTITATIVE GENETICS OF BRYOZOAN PHENOTYPIC EVOLUTION. II. ANALYSIS OF SELECTION AND RANDOM CHANGE IN FOSSIL SPECIES USING RECONSTRUCTED GENETIC PARAMETERS
TLDR
The hypothesis that differences in skeletal morphology between species of Metrarabdotos are entirely due to mutation and genetic drift cannot be rejected for reasonable rates of mutation maintained for periods brief enough to account for the geologically abrupt appearances of these species in the fossil record.

The possible roles of random genetic change and natural selection in bryozoan speciation were analyzed using quantitative genetic methods on breeding data for traits of skeletal morphology in twoExpand
The dynamics of peak shifts and the pattern of morphological evolution
TLDR
It is concluded that stasis is not the rule for quantitative measurements of detailed sequences for fossil species throughout most of their existence, and periods of relative stasis are interspersed with gradual fluctuating trends, short intervals of rapid change, and discontinuities of subspecific magnitude.

Stumped by Trees? A Generalized Null Model for Patterns of Organismal Diversity
TLDR
It is demonstrated theoretically and via simulations that relaxation of the hidden assumptions that speciation is essentially instantaneous and occurs independently in separate lineages leads to qualitatively different expectations concerning the expected phylogenetic topology. Expand
Estimating the Rate of Phenotypic Evolution from Comparative Data
TLDR
The technique is similar to those introduced previously in which between-species divergence is estimated as a function of time since divergence but also takes into account the possible statistical nonindependence of trait values measured from phylogenetically related species in an approach similar to the independent contrasts methods used in interspecific data analysis.

MORPHOLOGICAL EVOLUTION OF THE DROSOPHILA VIRILIS SPECIES GROUP AS ASSESSED BY RATE TESTS FOR NATURAL SELECTION ON QUANTITATIVE CHARACTERS
  • G. Spicer
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1993
TLDR
Two rate tests for assessing natural selection on quantitative traits are discussed for their usefulness in macroevolutionary and adaptational studies and can be interpreted to suggest that stabilizing selection has probably been a major factor in producing the observed similarity among the Drosophila species examined.

PHYLOGENETIC HYPOTHESES UNDER THE ASSUMPTION OF NEUTRAL QUANTITATIVE‐GENETIC VARIATION
  • M. Lynch
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1989
TLDR
The population‐genetic consequences of the neutral model are reviewed, and some statistical methods for testing whether the diversification of a phylogeny is compatible with such a model are outlined, and the theory is applied to a very large data set on cranial morphology in modern man. Expand
Phylogenies and quantitative characters
TLDR
Systematists and evolutionary geneticists don't often talk to each other, and they routinely dispaiage each other's work as being of little relevance to evolution, but changes in the methods of collecting and analyzing data are invalidating some of these views. Expand

TLDR
