Brian Sidlauskas' new paper in Evolution

This is a followup to a 2007 paper in Evolution and also the premier of the technique of phylomorphospace analysis Brian has developed. This is a way of projecting phylogenies into a mathematical space that illustrates differences and similarities among species, and using that projection to infer how evolutionary processes may have differed among portions of the phylogeny.
