Latest research from the Rowe lab.
PhD student Stephen P. De Lisle and Dean & PI Locke Rowe examined the relationship between sexual size dimorphism (SSD) and diversity dynamics across the Amphibia, a large and highly diverse vertebrate clade. Modern amphibians diverged from related tetrapods in the Carboniferous over 300 Ma.
Their work was published in Proceedings B with one of Stephens photos as the cover
