Data from: Competitive release leads to range expansion and rampant speciation in Malagasy dung beetles

Andreia Miraldo, Ilkka Hanski & Ilkka A. Hanski
Competition is often thought to promote ecological diversification and thereby to facilitate the coexistence of competitors during evolutionary radiations. At large spatial scales, species may also coexist by having allopatric distributions, which raises the question about the role of range expansion in the proliferation of species during radiations. Here, we integrate a well-sampled (50 out of 74 species) and timed phylogeny of Nanos and Apotolamprus dung beetles (Canthonini) in Madagascar with data on species’ geographical...
