A goal of macroevolutionary theory is to explain both diversity and disparity. These actively researched questions, the growing number of case studies, and the increasingly rigorous theory, has resulted in the re-examination of classical models for evolutionary tempo and mode. Time-calibrated molecular phylogenies are now used in conjunction with quantitative analyses of morphology to evaluate models of evolution. This book will present novel methods and case-studies of the tempo and mode of evolution of complex morphologies, including recent innovations in methods for describing and modeling complex morphologies, which have the potential to advance the field still further.

Key selling features:

Explores the relationship, if any, between species diversity and morphological disparityIncludes relevant case studiesDocuments the role of geography and ecology in generating or retarding diversity and disparityEvaluates contingent, deterministic and intrinsic controls on macroevolutionary patternsReviews models that predict diversity and disparity
