Data from: Geography of speciation affects rate of trait divergence in haemulid fishes

Jose Tavera & Peter Wainwright
Speciation and the interactions between recently diverged species are thought to be major causes of ecological and morphological divergence in evolutionary radiations. We explored the role of these factors in the diversification of New World haemulid fishes, a major radiation of shore fishes in the tropical West Atlantic and East Pacific that are key members of coral reef ecosystems in this region. A time calibrated molecular phylogeny of this group reveals 21 sister species pairs,...

Data from: Species-level predation network uncovers high prey specificity in a Neotropical army ant community

Army ants are among the top arthropod predators and considered keystone species in tropical ecosystems. During daily mass raids with many thousand workers, army ants hunt live prey, likely exerting strong top-down control on prey species. Many tropical sites exhibit a high army ant species diversity (>20 species), suggesting that sympatric species partition the available prey niches. However, whether and to what extent this is achieved has not been intensively studied yet. We therefore conducted...
