The purpose of this project is to develop an approach to evaluate the fit of continuous trait evolution models and to apply this approach to angiosperm functional trait data.

Adequacy for phylogenetic trait models

This is the repo for our project on assessing the adequacy of continuous trait models. This is a collaborative effort between Matt Pennell, Rich FitzJohn, Will Cornwell and Luke Harmon. A preprint of the manuscript is available on bioRxiv.

As part of this project, we also developed a R package arbutus so that researchers can apply our approach to their own data.
