Historical Caribbean landmasses and major competing hypotheses for dispersal. Schematic representations of the Caribbean land areas hypothesized to be available at certain time periods (see Additional file 1: Table S1 for geologic references) and the major competing hypotheses examined herein (see Table 1). Arrows indicate dispersal, dates next to the images depicting the Isthmus of Panama relate to the hypothesized Central American Seaway closure(s)
