- What factors shape rates of phenotypic evolution? A comparative study of cranial morphology of four mammalian cladesN Cooper
Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire, UK
J Evol Biol 22:1024-35. 2009..The mechanisms underlying these correlations are uncertain and appear to be size specific. We conclude that there is significant variation in rates of evolution, but that its meaning is not yet clear...

NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, UK
Proc Biol Sci 275:141-8. 2008..Instead of a rule, size evolution on islands is likely to be governed by the biotic and abiotic characteristics of different islands, the biology of the species in question and contingency...
- Body size evolution in mammals: complexity in tempo and modeNatalie Cooper
Division of Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
Am Nat 175:727-38. 2010..We conclude that the evolution of mammalian body size has been influenced by a complex interplay among geography, climate, and history...
