Citation Style

from Evolution's Guidelines for Authors

Literature Cited
References should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the manuscript. NOTE: Normally authors of cited works are denoted by last name and initials. However, in cases where two or more authors share the same last name and initials, they should be distinguished by inclusion of full names. The names of journals in the Literature Cited section must be abbreviated according to BIOSIS. In-text references to papers by one or two authors should be in full; e.g., "(Able and Charles 1986)." If the number of authors exceeds two, they should always be abbreviated. e.g.: "(Frank et al. 1986)."
