The role of species competition in biodiversity

… from around 40 million years ago to the present; theorizing that competition from other species was a factor driving extinction rates, they also compiled data for five additional carnivore families including cats, bear dogs, false saber-tooth cats, and bears. They developed an analytical framework to invesigate whether speciation and extinction rates responded to evolution of body mass—a good approximation of diet for canids. The authors suggest that body size can indirectly correlate with …
