Background: In adaptive radiations, ecological opportunity (i.e. niche availability) is considered to be an important driver to increase phenotypic variation, but diversity may also be constrained by historical factors related to colonization events. Question: How do ecological opportunity and post-glacial colonization history affect the phenotypic diversity in a young species lineage? Data: We quantified phenotypic diversity by the number of co-existing morphs and a heritable morphological… CONTINUE READING
