Stability and Intensity of Clinal Regimes over Longer Time Intervals: Implications for Interpreting Stratophenetic Patterns in the Fossil Record

Section: Evolution and systematics, Presentation: Oral
Evolution, gradients, clines
This study has quantified the norm of reaction in the trilobite Flexicalymene granulosa through geographic analyses at a temporal resolution of thousands of years, and then tracked this relationship between morphology and environment stratigraphically over an interval of hundreds of thousands of years. Results indicate that clines are persistent, dynamic and responsive to environmental shifts within the Kope Formation (Late Ordovician) of Ohio and Kentucky, U.S.A. .
