    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106, USA
    Mol Ecol 15:4645-57. 2006
    ..These patterns support the hypothesis that rapid evolutionary change occurs largely through regulatory rather than structural mutations...

    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Nature 447:706-9. 2007
    ..These findings show that evolution may proceed in predictable pathways without reversals and that change may be concentrated during speciation...

    Kathleen M Kay
    Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, 166 Plant Biology Building, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 6:36. 2006
    ..Here, we systematically review the literature to assess substitution rate variation in nrITS among angiosperms, and we evaluate possible correlates of the variation...

    Dena L Grossenbacher
    Department of Evolution and Ecology, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
    Evolution 65:2712-8. 2011
    ..Potential mechanisms underlying this pattern include reinforcement and a stepping stone model of parapatric speciation...

    Mol Phylogenet Evol 39:124-34. 2006
    ..Overall, this method provides an efficient means of isolating predominantly single-copy loci from both low and high-copy gene families, providing ample nuclear variation for reconstructing species-level phylogenies in non-model taxa...

    Evolution 65:365-76. 2011
    ..Finally, endemics were younger on average than nonendemics, but this alone does not explain their low diversification...
