Climatic refugia and reduced extinction correlate with underdispersion in mammals and birds in Africa

Jacob C. Cooper, Nicholas M. A. Crouch, Adam W. Ferguson & John M. Bates
Macroevolutionary patterns, often inferred from metrics of community relatedness, are often used to ascertain major evolutionary processes shaping communities. These patterns have been shown to be informative of biogeographic barriers, of habitat suitability and invasibility (especially with regards to environmental filtering), and of regions that function as evolutionary cradles (i.e., sources of diversification) or museums (i.e., regions of reduced extinction). Here, we analysed continental datasets of mammal and bird distributions to identify primary drivers of...
