    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...

    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...
