Ancient habitat shifts and organismal diversification are decoupled in the African viper genus Bitis (Serpentes: Viperidae)
Aim: The expansion of open habitats during the mid-Miocene has been hypothesized as a driver of allopatric speciation for many African taxa. This habitat-dependent mode of diversification has beenExpand
