Data from: A phylogenomic rodent tree reveals the repeated evolution of masseter architectures

Mark T. Swanson, Carl H. Oliveros & Jacob A. Esselstyn
Understanding the number of times a trait has evolved is a necessary foundation for comprehending its potential relationships with selective regimes, developmental constraints, and evolutionary diversification. Rodents make up over 40% extant of mammalian species and their ecological and evolutionary success has been partially attributed to the increase in biting efficiency that resulted from a forward shift of one or two portions of the masseter muscle from the zygomatic arch onto the rostrum. This forward...
