Hello, I am wondering what comparative method(s) is appropriate for testing if diversification rates are highest when two traits are present together, rather than one alone? Specifically, if I have two binary traits, let's say freshwater/marine and temperate/tropical, what is the best way to test if diversification rates are highest in tropical+freshwater groups, as opposed to tropical+marine or temperate+freshwater? I think MuSSE can do this, but my tree is large so I want to avoid issues associated with rate heterogeneity. Are there any alternatives?
