1 ... In that Empire, the Art of Cartography attained such Perfection that the map of a single Province occupied the entirety of a City, and the map of the Empire, the entirety of a Province. In time, those Unconscionable Maps no longer satisfied, and the Cartographers Guilds struck a Map of the Empire whose size was that of the Empire, and which coincided point for point with it. The following Generations, who were not so fond of the Study of Cartography as their Forebears had been, saw that that vast Map was Useless, and not without some Pitilessness was it, that they delivered it up to the Inclemencies of Sun and Winters. In the Deserts of the West, still today, there are Tattered Ruins of that Map, inhabited by Animals and Beggars; in all the Land there is no other Relic of the Disciplines of Geography.

22 We can fit Brownian motion model to comparative data using likelihood

24 Quantitative genetics A quantitative genetics model of pure genetic drift also produces Brownian motion Three parameters: G, Ne, zo σ 2 = G/Ne

27 σ 2 = G/Ne
28 σ 2 = G/Ne σ 2 / Vp = h 2 /Ne
29 Across a wide range of taxa, σ 2 /Vp is about 0.74
30 Across a wide range of taxa, σ 2 /Vp is about 0.74 That is, the average Brownian rate parameter is about 0.74 phenotypic standard deviations per million years
31 Across a wide range of taxa, σ 2 /Vp is about 0.74 That is, the average Brownian rate parameter is about 0.74 phenotypic standard deviations per million years That translates to a variance of 1.2 x 106 phenotypic sd per generation
32 Across a wide range of taxa, σ 2 /Vp is about 0.74 That is, the average Brownian rate parameter is about 0.74 phenotypic standard deviations per million years That translates to a variance of 1.2 x 106 phenotypic sd per generation About half of the time, the change from one generation to the next is phenotypic s.d.

35 What about selection?
36 Brownian motion can also result if selection is random in direction and relatively weak
37
38 BM model: About half of the time, the change from one generation to the next is phenotypic s.d.
39 What happens with OU models?
40 OU Model  single optimim Three parameters: starting value (μ), rate (σ 2 ), and constraint parameter (α) i sij j T = total tree depth
41 stabilizing selection (co)variance + 
42 α = 1 / (ω+p)
43 α = 1 / (ω+p) mean α across clades: 0.34
44 α = 1 / (ω+p) mean α across clades: 0.34 Typical ω 2 = 350
45 α = 1 / (ω+p) mean α across clades: 0.34 Typical ω 2 = 350 P would have to be negative to get these alpha values
46 α = 1 / (ω+p) mean α across clades: 0.34 Typical ω 2 = 350 P would have to be negative to get these alpha values (e.g. stabilizing selection is typically stronger than what OU values suggest)
47 What does this mean? Commonly used models can fit comparative data Simplistic quantitative genetics interpretations of these models are probably not correct
48 Brownian motion is not drift OrnsteinUhlenbeck is not stabilizing selection on a single peak
49 HansenMartins environmental change model Imagine populations are subject to strong stabilizing selection on optima But the position of these optima varies according to a Brownian motion model
50 σb 2 = overall rate of drift σe 2 = rate of drift of optima Hansen and Martins 1996
51 σb 2 = overall rate of drift σe 2 = rate of drift of optima When σe 2 larger than (left term): Hansen and Martins 1996
52 σb 2 = overall rate of drift σe 2 = rate of drift of optima When σe 2 larger than (left term): σb 2 = σe 2 Hansen and Martins 1996
53 Main idea: patterns of trait means on trees might reflect the dynamics of the adaptive landscape more than they reflect processes of adaptation within populations
54 Slatkin and Pollack 2005
55 within species Slatkin and Pollack 2005
56 within species among species Slatkin and Pollack 2005
57 Possible model: The location of the optimum changes rapidly from one generation to the next Globally, optima are constrained to be within a certain range of values
