The impact of Felsenstein's Phylogenies and the comparative method on evolutionary biology


, : The impact of Felsenstein's Phylogenies and the comparative method on evolutionary biology. Scientometrics 62(1): 53-66

Felsenstein's (1985) method of phylogenetic independent contrasts is probably the most commonly used technique in evolutionary biology to study adaptation of organisms to their environment, taking phylogeny into account. Here, we performed a scientometric evaluation of all 1462 articles that cited Felsenstein (1985) between 1985 and 2002, in order to analyze the impact of his comparative method on the evolutionary research program and what has been done since it.
