abstract: Despite the many triumphs of comparative biology dur-
ing the past few decades, the field has remained strangely divorced
from evolutionary genetics. In particular, comparative methods have
failed to incorporate multivariate process models of microevolution
that include genetic constraint in the form of the G matrix. Here we
explore the insights that might be gained by such an analysis. A
neutral model of evolution by genetic drift that depends on effective
population size and the G matrix predicts a probability distribution
