Data from: Global biogeography and diversification of palms sheds light on the evolution of tropical lineages. I. Historical biogeography

William J. Baker, Thomas L. P. Couvreur & Thomas L.P. Couvreur
AIM: Palms (Arecaceae/Palmae) are a model group for evolutionary studies in the tropics. Family-wide data on taxonomy, phylogenetics and distribution are now available, but a general framework of palm evolution is still lacking. The overall aim of this study, published in two companion papers, is to seek evolutionary explanations for the geographical distribution of palm lineages and species diversity patterns at global and regional levels. In this first paper we undertake a detailed analysis of...
