Abstract

Cadena et al.1 question our conclusion that species diversity can positively influence speciation rate on the basis of their analysis of a data set for West Indian land birds, in which an additional variable is added — lineage age. Here we clarify our hypothesis and show why their system is not suitable for testing whether species diversity can drive speciation.
