Trait-based range expansion aided in the global radiation of Crocodylidae

Nicolaï, Michaël P. J.; Matzke, Nicholas

Description

Aim: Almost half of the extant species of Crocodylia (nine genera, sensu Benton & Clark) belong to the genus Crocodylus, which originated in the Miocene. Today, this genus has a circumtropical distribution, with representatives found in Asia, Oceania, Africa and the Neotropics. However, its geographical origin and the historical events behind its rapid diversification and global radiation are still debated. Here, we inferred the evolution of a set of life traits that aid in dispersal and how...[Show more]
