Data from: Loss of sexual recombination and segregation is associated with increased diversification in evening primroses

Marc T. J. Johnson, Richard Gareth FitzJohn, Stacey D. Smith, Mark D. Rausher & Sarah P. Otto
The loss of sexual recombination and segregation in asexual organisms has been portrayed as an irreversible process that commits asexually-reproducing lineages to reduced diversification. We test this hypothesis by estimating rates of speciation, extinction, and transition between sexuality and functional asexuality in the evening primroses. Specifically, we estimate these rates using the recently developed BiSSE (Binary State Speciation and Extinction) phylogenetic comparative method, which employs maximum likelihood and Bayesian techniques. We infer that net diversification...
