Evidence is accumulating that rates of molecular evolution vary substantially between species, and that this rate variation is partly determined by species characteristics. A better understanding of how and why rates of molecular evolution vary provides a window on evolutionary processes, and might facilitate improvements in DNA sequence analysis. Measuring rates of molecular evolution and identifying the correlates of rate variation present a unique set of challenges. We describe and compare...[Show more]
