Clade Age and Species Richness Are Decoupled Across the Eukaryotic Tree of Life

Figure 1

Phylogenetic distribution of species richness across the eukaryotic tree of life.

(A) Time-calibrated tree of 1,397 clades of multicellular eukaryotes; length of gray bars indicates relative log-transformed species richness of each group. (B) Total species richness of major groups. Clade colors in (A) correspond to names in (B).
