Phylogenetic and ecological correlates of pollen morphological diversity in a neotropical rainforest

Luke Mander, Caroline Parins-Fukuchi, Christopher W. Dick, Surangi W. Punyasena & Carlos Jaramillo.
Morphology varies enormously across clades, and the morphology of a trait may reflect ecological function or the retention of ancestral features. We examine the tension between ecological and phylogenetic correlates of morphological diversity through a case study of pollen grains produced by angiosperms in Barro Colorado Island, Panama (BCI). Using a molecular phylogeny of 730 taxa we demonstrate a statistically significant association between morphological and genetic distance for these plants. However, the relationship is non-linear,...
