Section of Evolution and Ecology, University of California, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Science 306:1172-4. 2004..However, an analysis of two "supermatrices" suggests that even data sets with as much as 92% missing data can provide insights into broad sections of the tree of life...
- Piscivory limits diversification of feeding morphology in centrarchid fishesDavid C Collar
Section of Evolution and Ecology, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
Evolution 63:1557-73. 2009..These results suggest that piscivory limits feeding morphology diversification, but this effect is most severe in lineages that exhibit an extreme form of this diet...
