Fossil species appear to persist morphologically unchanged for long intervals of geologic time, punctuated by short bursts of rapid change as explained by the Ecological Evolutionary Units (EEUs). Here, morphological variation in Paleozoic atrypide morphology at the subfamily level (Atrypinae and Variatrypinae) from the Silurian and Devonian time intervals in the third Paleozoic EEU (<_444-35920_my29_20_were20_investigated20_using20_relatively20_new20_techniques20_of20_quantitative20_modeling.20_the20_study20_explains20_how20_a20_group20_of20_closely20_related20_taxa20_in20_atrypide20_subfamilies20_exhibit20_morphological20_conservation20_through20_time20_in20_p320_eeu20_within20_the20_eastern20_north20_america20_region. _my29_="" were="" investigated="" using="" relatively="" new="" techniques="" of="" quantitative="" modeling.="" the="" study="" explains="" how="" a="" group="" closely="" related="" taxa="" in="" atrypide="" subfamilies="" exhibit="" morphological="" conservation="" through="" time="" p3="" eeu="" within="" eastern="" north="" america="">
