New Approaches for Comparative Phylogenetics with Continuous Traits
This notebook continues in my new notebook instead of the calendar-linked wiki pages above. All new entries can be seen through the embedded frame above. The OWW notebook remains my archive on this topic from the beginning of February 2010 to October 20th, 2010. Many improved features, including nice handling of categories and tags, better search, clean rss feeds of posts, easy control over backups, support for mobile devices, and control over format and layout have led me to explore this change. The notebook remains open.
Phylogenetically based comparative methods are an established and rapidly expanding area of research in macroevolution. Existing approaches may produce misleading results when the traits under consideration reflect different niche specialization across the taxa in question. I propose a method that addresses these difficulties and extends our ability to ask new questions using phylogenetic comparative data, such as the inferring number of niches represented in the data and rate of evolutionary transitions between niches.
