Dataset on the differing effects of size and lifestyle on bone structure in mammals

Eli Amson
Raw µCT-scan data of humerus and mid-lumbar vertebra for 190 specimens of therian mammals (marsupials + placentals). These data were acquired to quantify bone inner structure across mammals and identify adaptations that can be ascribed to lifestyle transitions, in particular to the aerial, aquatic, and subterranean environments. The dataset has been analyzed in Amson, E.: Differing effects of size and lifestyle on bone structure in mammals (under review). µCT-scan were acquired with the Phoenix nanotom...
