Data from: Trait decoupling promotes evolutionary diversification of the trophic and acoustic system of damselfishes

Bruno Frédérich, Damien Olivier, Glenn Litsios, Michael E. Alfaro, Eric Parmentier & B. Frederich
Trait decoupling, wherein evolutionary release of constraints permits specialization of formerly integrated structures, represents a major conceptual framework for interpreting patterns of organismal diversity. However, few empirical tests of this hypothesis exist. A central prediction, that the tempo of morphological evolution and ecological diversification should increase following decoupling events, remains inadequately tested. In damselfishes (Pomacentridae), a ceratomandibular ligament links the hyoid bar and lower jaws, coupling two main morphofunctional units directly involved in both feeding...
