A suite of methods and models for studying evolutionary radiations

Language: R


Build Status

This is the development version of the geiger package for manipulating phylogenetic comparative data and fitting macroevolutionary models. The package can be downloaded from CRAN


or installed directly from github with the devtools package


Major features

geiger is a (growing) collection of methods developed over the years by many researchers. Here is a a non-comprehensive list of methods:

Citing geiger
