Data from: Commensal associations and benthic habitats shape macroevolution of the bivalve clade Galeommatoidea

Jingchun Li, Diarmaid Ó Foighil & Ellen E. Strong
The great diversity of marine life has been shaped by the interplay between abiotic and biotic factors. Among different biotic interactions, symbiosis is an important yet less studied phenomenon. Here, we tested how symbiotic associations affected marine diversification, using the bivalve superfamily Galeommatoidea as a study system. This superfamily contains large numbers of obligate commensal as well as free-living species and is therefore amenable to comparative approaches. We constructed a global molecular phylogeny of Galeommatoidea...
