  • Patterns of diversification in species-rich clades provide insight into the processes that generate biological diversity. [...] Key Method We tested different models of lineage and phenotypic diversification in an exceptional continental radiation, the ovenbird family Furnariidae, using the most complete species-level phylogenetic hypothesis produced to date for a major avian clade (97% of 293 species). We found that the Furnariidae exhibit nearly constant rates of lineage accumulation but show evidence of…Expand Abstract
