Wainwright Meeting

Discussed goals and appropriate approach. Settled on linear order rather than trying to directly implement the full MCMC over paintings solution directly. Breaks into four steps/manuscripts:

  1. Phylogenetic signal and model choice in Comparative Methods: Likelihood ratio approach
  2. Detecting changing constraints in evolution: varying alpha and sigma across the tree
  3. Bayesian approach for all existing continuous trait comparative methods
  4. MCMC over possible histories to infer number of niches
