  • Arising from: B. C. Emerson & N. Kolm 434, 1015–1017 (2005); B. C. Emerson & N. Kolm replyEmerson and Kolm show that the proportion of species endemic to an island is positively related to its species richness and, assuming that endemism indexes speciation rate, they infer that greater species diversity accelerates diversification. Here we demonstrate that the same correlation between species richness and percentage endemism can arise even if within-island speciation is negligible, particularly… CONTINUE READING
