""Inferring Models for Continuous Characters in R""

Introductory material on continuous models: Brownian motion, Pagel transformations, Ornstein-Uhlenbeck models.

""A Note about Multiple Implementations of these Methods""

Currently, there are multiple implementations of several of these models across different packages. The results are not always the same across methods, however, because either (i) the purpose of the analysis is slightly different across packages, or (ii) the implementations use different computational strategies.
