    Craig R McClain
    National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, Durham, NC 27705, USA
    Biol Lett 9:20120989. 2013
    ..Overall, we find that different clades may be evolutionarily predisposed to dwarfism or gigantism, but the magnitude of size changes depends more on adaptation to the novel island environment...
  2. pmc Energetics of life on the deep seafloor
    Craig R McClain
    National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, Durham, NC 27705 4667, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:15366-71. 2012
    ..Understanding deep-sea energetics is a pressing problem because of accelerating climate change and the general lack of environmental regulatory policy for the deep oceans...

    Craig R McClain
    National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, 2024 W Main Street, Durham, North Carolina 27705, USA
    Evolution 66:2204-15. 2012
    ..We posit based on these findings and previous work that increases in chemical energy are important to the diversification of Metazoans through size-mediated niche processes...

    Craig R McClain
    Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Moss Landing, CA 95039, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 276:2209-15. 2009
    ..Similar patterns are also observed within birds and mammals. The observations point to several fundamental linkages between species diversification and body size variation through the evolution of animal life...
