Data from: Hierarchy in adaptive radiation: a case study using the Carnivora (Mammalia)

Graham J Slater & Anthony R Friscia
Simpson’s “early burst” model of adaptive radiation was intended to explain the early proliferation of morphological and functional variation in diversifying clades. Yet, despite much empirical testing, questions remain regarding its frequency across the tree of life. Here, we evaluate the support for an early burst adaptive radiation in 14 ecomorphological traits plus body mass for the extant mammalian order Carnivora and its constituent families. We find strong support for an early burst of evolution...
