Given their Received 22 October 2015 ecological variability and widespread distribution across ocean basins, it is important to scrutinize their Revised 12 February 2016 evolutionary history that underlies present day distributions. This study investigated the patterns and Accepted 16 February 2016 processes by which grouper biodiversity has been generated and what factors have inﬂuenced their pre- Available online 21 February 2016 sent day distributions. We reconstructed a robust, time-calibrated molecular phylogeny of Epinephelidae with comprehensive (87%) species sampling, whereby diversiﬁcation rates were estimated
