Adaptive radiations are known for rapid morphological and species diversification in response to ecological opportunity, but it remains unclear if distinct mechanisms drive this pattern. Here, we show that rapid rates of morphological diversification are linked to the evolution of novel ecological niches in two independent Cyprinodon radiations nested within a wide‐ranging group repeatedly isolated in extreme environments. We constructed a molecular phylogeny for the Cyprinodontidae, measured… Expand
Novel trophic niches drive variable progress towards ecological speciation within an adaptive radiation of pupfishes
TLDR
It is concluded that the scale‐eater is further along the speciation‐with‐gene‐flow continuum than the durophage and suggested that different adaptive landscapes underlying these two niche environments drive variable progress towards speciation within the same habitat. Expand

TLDR
Predictions of the EO model are tested to evaluate the role of EO conferred by foregut fermentation in shaping the African and Asian colobine radiations and provide compelling evidence that decreasing availability of new adaptive zones during colonization of Asia together with constraints presented by dietary specialization underlie temporal changes in diversification in the Asian but not African clade.

Ecomorphological diversification following continental colonization in muroid rodents (Rodentia: Muroidea)
TLDR
Weak to no support is identified of early ecological diversification following the initial colonizations of all continental regions, and results indicate that shifts in diversification rates and biogeographically-mediated ecological opportunity are poor predictors of phenotypic diversity patterns in muroids.

RATES OF MORPHOLOGICAL EVOLUTION ARE CORRELATED WITH SPECIES RICHNESS IN SALAMANDERS

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the variation in species richness among plethodontid salamander clades is unlikely to have resulted from simple time‐dependent processes, leading to fundamentally different conclusions about the relationship between rates of phenotypic evolution and species diversification.

The cryptic origins of evolutionary novelty: 1000‐fold faster trophic diversification rates without increased ecological opportunity or hybrid swarm

TLDR
This study shows that a sympatric three species radiation on San Salvador Island, Bahamas diversified 1445 times faster than neighboring islands in jaw length due to the evolution of a novel scale‐eating adaptive zone from a generalist ancestral niche and suggests that diversification of novel specialists on a sparse fitness landscape is constrained by more than ecological opportunity and gene flow. Expand
Evidence for determinism in species diversification and contingency in phenotypic evolution during adaptive radiation
TLDR
The test of well-sampled phylogenies of four squamate groups that colonized the New World in the Late Oligocene suggests that the processes that drive diversification and disparification are not mechanistically linked, even among similar groups of taxa experiencing the same sources of EO. Expand
Adaptive introgression from distant Caribbean islands contributed to the diversification of a microendemic adaptive radiation of trophic specialist pupfishes
TLDR
The complex emerging picture of the origins of adaptive radiation on San Salvador Island indicates that multiple sources of genetic variation contributed to the adaptive phenotypes of novel trophic specialists on the island, suggesting that a suite of factors, including rare adaptive introgression, may be necessary for adaptive radiation in addition to ecological opportunity. Expand
The cryptic origins of evolutionary novelty: 1,000-fold-faster trophic diversification rates without increased ecological opportunity or hybrid swarm
TLDR
This study provides a strong counterexample to the ecological/hybrid-swarm theories of adaptive radiation and suggests that diversification of novel specialists on a sparse fitness landscape is constrained by more than ecological opportunity and gene flow. Expand
The genetic architecture of novel trophic specialists: larger effect sizes are associated with exceptional oral jaw diversification in a pupfish adaptive radiation
TLDR
The first linkage map for pupfishes is presented and significant QTL for sex and eight skeletal traits are detected and large‐effect QTL contributed more to enlarged scale‐eater jaws than the molluscivore nasal protrusion, consistent with predictions from the adaptive landscape. Expand
Host conservatism, geography, and elevation in the evolution of a Neotropical moth radiation
TLDR
Overall, patterns of diversification in Eois are consistent with the perspective that shifts across multiple adaptive zones synergistically drive diversify in hyper‐diverse lineages. Expand

TLDR
Interestingly, this morphological diversity within six functionally important oral jaw traits may not have led to differential resource uses as available data suggest that members of this clade show remarkable homogeneity of diet. Expand
Clade-specific morphological diversification and adaptive radiation in Hawaiian songbirds
TLDR
Although the magnitude of bill variation among the honeycreepers is similar to that of the entire passerine radiation, this dramatic morphological radiation represents an extreme manifestation of a general clade–specific ability to evolve novel morphologies. Expand
Comparative rates of lower jaw diversification in cichlid adaptive radiations
TLDR
The lower jaw (LJ) provides an ideal trophic phenotype to compare rates and patterns of macroevolution among cichlid radiations, and the Lake Malawi flock exhibited a much faster rate of evolution in several components of the LJ than the Central America Heroines; this rapid rate of divergence is consistent with natural selection.

Historical Biogeography of the New-World Pupfish Genus Cyprinodon (Teleostei: Cyprinodontidae)
TLDR
Analysis of mtDNA sequence variation indicates that the genus Cyprinodon began diverging in the Late Miocene from a common ancestor with Megupsilon, a monotypic genus on the Mesa del Norte of Mexico. Expand
Shared and Unique Features of Evolutionary Diversification
TLDR
It is found that shared aspects of divergence were of larger magnitude than unique elements, suggesting common natural selective forces have played a greater role than unique histories in producing the observed patterns of morphological diversification. Expand

Using mitochondrial control region and ND2 sequence data, it is found that monophyletic clades within C. variegatus with divergence times within the Pleistocene, and very low gene flow between most sites appear to correspond broadly to biogeographic or oceanic boundaries. Expand

Zoogeographic analysis of this phylogeny suggests a Tethyan distribution for the ancestral cyprinodontid lineage and range expansion, permitted by the formation of epicontinental seas in the Cretaceous, may explain the presence of Orestias, most closely related to the Mediterranean Aphanius, in Andean South America.
