Data from: Functional performance of turtle humerus shape across an ecological adaptive landscape

Blake V Dickson & Stephanie E Pierce
The concept of the adaptive landscape has been invaluable to evolutionary biologists for visualizing the dynamics of selection and adaptation; and is increasingly being used to study morpho-functional data. Here we construct adaptive landscapes to explore functional trade-offs of humerus morphology in turtles adapted to three different locomotor environments: marine, semiaquatic, and terrestrial. Humerus shape from 40 species of cryptodire turtles was quantified using a pseudolandmark approach. Hypothetical shapes were extracted in a grid across...
