Data from: Comparative analysis of animal growth: a primate continuum revealed by a new dimensionless growth rate coefficient

Lucio Vinicius & Hannah S. Mumby
The comparative analysis of animal growth still awaits full integration into life history studies, partially due to the difficulty of defining a comparable measure of growth rate across species. Using growth data from 50 primate species, we introduce a modified ‘general growth model’ and a dimensionless growth rate coefficient β that controls for size scaling and phylogenetic effects in the distribution of growth rates. Our results contradict the prevailing idea that slow growth characterizes primates...
