Do Reefs Drive Diversification in Marine Teleosts? Evidence from the Pufferfishes and Their Allies (Order Tetraodontiformes)

  • Purpose:

    • Determine if reef-association has an effect on higher rates of diversification.

  • Methods:

    • Taxonomic sampling

    • DNA extraction and comparisons
