Time-dependent rates of molecular evolution

Ho, Simon; Lanfear, Robert; Bromham, Lindell; Phillips, Matthew; Soubrier, Julien; Rodrigo, Allen G.; Cooper, Alan


For over half a century, it has been known that the rate of morphological evolution appears to vary with the time frame of measurement. Rates of microevolutionary change, measured between successive generations, were found to be far higher than rates of macroevolutionary change inferred from the fossil record. More recently, it has been suggested that rates of molecular evolution are also time dependent, with the estimated rate depending on the timescale of measurement. This followed surprising...[Show more]
