Data from: Divergent in shape and convergent in function: adaptive evolution of the mandible in Sub-Antarctic mice

Sabrina Renaud, Ronan Ledevin, Benoît Pisanu, Jean-Louis Chapuis, Petra Quillfeldt & Emilie A. Hardouin
Convergent evolution in similar environments constitutes strong evidence of adaptive evolution. Transported with people around the world, house mice colonized even remote areas, such as Sub-Antarctic islands. There, they returned to a feral way of life, shifting towards a diet enriched in terrestrial macroinvertebrates. Here, we test the hypothesis that this triggered convergent evolution of the mandible, a morphological character involved in food consumption. Mandible shape from four Sub-Antarctic islands was compared to phylogeny, tracing...
