The new paper from our lab is out! In this study, Dr. Laura Alencar explores if the evolution of arboreality in vipers affects species and morphological diversification regimes. We found out that although arboreal vipers evolve under a more constrained morphological trajectories compared to terrestrial vipers, speciation rates remain similar. This study was part of her PhD thesis, and was featured in the cover of Proceedings B with a beautiful image by one of the authors, Marcio Martins.
