Recent and rapid speciation with limited morphological disparity in the genus rattus

Rowe, Kevin C.; Aplin, Ken; Baverstock, Peter Raymond; Moritz, Craig

Description

Recent and rapid radiations provide rich material to examine the factors that drive speciation. Most recent and rapid radiations that have been well-characterized involve species that exhibit overt ecomorphological differences associated with clear partitioning of ecological niches in sympatry. The most diverse genus of rodents, Rattus (66 species), evolved fairly recently, but without overt ecomorphological divergence among species. We used multilocus molecular phylogenetic data and five...[Show more]
