Data from: Enemy at the gates: rapid defensive trait diversification in an adaptive radiation of lizards

Chris Broeckhoven, Genevieve Diedericks, Cang Hui, Buyisile G. Makhubo & Pieter Le Fras Nortier Mouton
Adaptive radiation, the product of rapid diversification of an ancestral species into novel adaptive zones, has become pivotal in our understanding of biodiversity. While it has widely been accepted that predators may drive the process of adaptive radiation by creating ecological opportunity (e.g. enemy-free space), the role of predators as selective agents in defensive trait diversification remains controversial. Using phylogenetic comparative methods, we provide evidence for an ‘early burst’ in the diversification of antipredator phenotypes...
