Diversification rates obtained from a survey of species-level molecular phylogenies
Diversification rates estimated from species-level phylogenies obtained from 245 clades of animals and plants. A full description of this data set can be found in McPeek, M.A. and J.M. Brown (2007) Clade age and not diversification rate explains species richness among animal taxa. American Naturalist 169:E97-E106.
