Data from: Accumulation over evolutionary time as a major cause of biodiversity hotspots in conifers

Mekala Sundaram, Michael Donoghue, Aljos Farjon, Denis Filer, Sarah Mathews, Walter Jetz & Andrew Leslie
Biodiversity hotspots are important for understanding how areas of high species richness form, but disentangling the processes that produce them is difficult. We combine geographic ranges, phylogenetic relationships, and trait data for 606 conifer species in order to explore the mechanisms underlying richness hotspot formation. We identify eight richness hotspots that overlap known centers of plant endemism and diversity. We find that conifer richness hotspots occur in mountainous areas within broader regions of long-term climate...
