Data from: Ecological specialization, rather than the island effect, explains morphological diversification in an ancient radiation of geckos

Héctor Tejero-Cicuéndez, Marc Simó-Riudalbas, Iris Menéndez & Salvador Carranza
Island colonists are often assumed to experience higher levels of phenotypic diversification than continental taxa. However, empirical evidence shows that exceptions to this “island effect” do exist. Here, we tested this pattern using a thoroughly sampled continent-island system, the genus Pristurus, a group of sphaerodactylid geckos distributed across continental Arabia and Africa and the Socotra Archipelago. We used a recently published phylogeny and an extensive morphological dataset to explore whether Socotran and continental taxa differ...
