Data from: Size variation, growth strategies and the evolution of modularity in the mammalian skull

Arthur Porto, Leila Teruko Shirai, Felipe Bandoni De Oliveira & Gabriel Marroig
Allometry is a major determinant of within-population patterns of association among traits and, therefore, a major component of morphological integration studies. Even so, the influence of size variation over evolutionary change has been largely unappreciated. Here, we explore the interplay between allometric size variation, modularity, and life history strategies in the skull from representatives of 35 mammalian families. We start by removing size variation from within-species data and analyzing its influence on integration magnitudes, modularity...
