Abstract

Alexandre Siqueira investigated trophic evolution in coral reef fishes. He found that what fishes eat is important to determine how fast new species originate, besides being a major component of global patterns of species distributions. This evolutionary perspective focused on species roles in ecosystems offers an exciting future research avenue.
