Table 1 Models of diversification rates that were used with MuSSE. All models were evaluated for all dated trees (MCMCtree, treePL, and RelTime), choosing the best fitting one by the AIC value

From: Microhabitat change drives diversification in pholcid spiders

model speciation rates extinction rates setting
1 λ123 μ123 no difference in speciation or extinction rates between microhabitats
2a λ1, λ2, λ3 μ123 speciation rates differ among microhabitats
2b λ1, λ23 μ123 no difference in speciation rate of leaf and space, but difference to ground
3 λ123 μ1, μ2, μ3 extinction rates differ among microhabitats
4 λ1, λ2, λ3 μ1, μ2, μ3 speciation and extinction rates differ among microhabitats
