The wealth of molecular data generated
over the past two decades has led to the
documentation of highly disparate rates of
molecular evolution among different taxa.
Among the more intriguing studies is that of
Martin and Palumbi (1993), who presented
data (their Table 2) derived from a variety
of vertebrate taxa purporting to show that
the rate of molecular evolution is inversely
