Mutation rate is linked to diversification in birds

Lanfear, Robert; Ho, Simon; Love, Dominic; Bromham, Lindell


How does genome evolution affect the rate of diversification of biological lineages? Recent studies have suggested that the overall rate of genome evolution is correlated with the rate of diversification. If true, this claimhas important consequences forunderstanding the process of diversification, and implications for the use of DNA sequence data to reconstruct evolutionary history. However, the generality and cause of this relationship have not been established. Here, we test the relationship...[Show more]
