Data from: Testing for ancient adaptive radiations in Neotropical cichlid fishes

Hernán López-Fernández, Jessica H. Arbour, Kirk O. Winemiller & Rodney L. Honeycutt
Most contemporary studies of adaptive radiation focus on relatively recent and geographically restricted clades. It is less clear whether diversification of ancient clades spanning entire continents is consistent with adaptive radiation. We used novel fossil calibrations to generate a chronogram of Neotropical cichlid fishes and to test whether patterns of lineage and morphological diversification are congruent with hypothesized adaptive radiations in South and Central America. We found that diversification in the Neotropical cichlid clade and...
