Data from: Temporal patterns of diversification across global cichlid biodiversity (Acanthomorpha: Cichlidae)

Caleb D. McMahan, Prosanta Chakrabarty, John S. Sparks, Wm. Leo Smith & Matthew P. Davis
The contrasting distribution of species diversity across the major lineages of cichlids makes them an ideal group for investigating macroevolutionary processes. In this study, we investigate whether different rates of diversification may explain the disparity in species richness across cichlid lineages globally. We present the most taxonomically robust time-calibrated hypothesis of cichlid evolutionary relationships to date. We then utilize this temporal framework to investigate whether both species-rich and depauperate lineages are associated with rapid shifts...
