I cannot find empirical verification of the macroevolutionary paradigm.
When it comes to a macroevolutionary syst. of classification -
"At the present time, biologists still have not developed a phylogenetic 
system of taxonomy" -deQueiroz & Gather, An. Rev. of Eco. & Syst. 1992
There's no ultimate cause of speciation, "The proximate mechanisms of re-
productive isolation are well understood . . but we remain ignorant of the
ultimate causes of speciation" -Hatfield, Evolution 53(3)p. 866    HELP!
