Data from: A new phylogenetic method for identifying exceptional phenotypic diversification

Liam J. Revell, D. Luke Mahler, Pedro R. Peres-Neto & Benjamin D. Redelings
Currently available phylogenetic methods for studying the rate of evolution in a continuously valued character assume that the rate is constant throughout the tree or that it changes along specific branches according to an a priori hypothesis of rate variation provided by the user. Herein, we describe a new method for studying evolutionary rate variation in continuously valued characters given an estimate of the phylogenetic history of the species in our study. According to this...
