Dear R-sig-phylo,

When analyzing comparative data in a PCM framework, is it be appropriate to use 
an AIC score to advocate for log transforming input data? ie model(data) vs 

I’m running a few OUwie models and it’s not entirely clear from the biology 
whether or not the ‘standard’ log transformation makes sense. In my case, the 
model(log(data)) results have much lower AIC values relative to the model(data)
