“The minimal definition of macroevolution is “evolution above the species level”, but it has become a catchall term encompassing everything from speciation to lineage-diversification and extinction dynamics to “evolution of ‘higher taxa’” ack! go read “down with phyla!” to vaguely defined “large” amounts of change to evo-devo changes in development.”
“Given the evo-devo focus, I suspect that the implied denominator is not coding loci, but rather coding, plus regulatory, plus potentially regulatory loci.”
