Diversity dependence of key ecological and genetic variables. Simulations were replicated 50 times with default parameter values (Supplementary Table 1). For each variable (see Methods, section “Numerical simulations” for details about the computation of each variable), the left column (a, c, e, g, i, k, m) shows median values (black lines), 95% and 50% confidence intervals (purple areas), computed across all species (as in Fig. 1d–f); the right column (b, d, f, h, j, l, n) shows median values for species about to speciate (within the next 200 generations; blue), about to go extinct (within the next 200 generations; red), and for “static” species (neither speciation nor extinction within the next 2000 generations; orange). The three stages of diversification (1–3) are highlighted by gray shadings, as in Fig. 1. A sensitivity analysis of these results is reported in Supplementary Figs. 6 and 8
