Ecological divergence, adaptive diversification, and the evolution of social signaling traits: An empirical study in arid Australian lizards

Edwards, Danielle L.; Melville, Jane; Joseph, Leo; Keogh, J Scott


Species diversification often results from divergent evolution of ecological or social signaling traits. Theoretically, a combination of the two may promote speciation, however, empirical examples studying how social signal and ecological divergence might be involved in diversification are rare in general and typically do not consider range overlap as a contributing factor. We show that ecologically distinct lineages within the Australian sand dragon species complex (including Ctenophorus...[Show more]
