MAMMALS EVOLVE FASTER ON SMALLER ISLANDS – Millien – 2011 – Evolution – Wiley Online Library

MAMMALS EVOLVE FASTER ON SMALLER ISLANDS – Millien – 2011 – Evolution – Wiley Online Library.

Only just spotted this article – ” It is also often assumed that the island effect is stronger and that evolution is faster on the smallest islands. I used a dataset assembled from the literature to test these assumptions for the first time. I show that mammals on smaller islands do indeed evolve more rapidly than mammals on larger islands, and also evolve by a greater amount”.
