Data from: Colour, design, and reward: phenotypic integration of fleshy fruit displays

Alfredo Valido, H Martin Schaefer & Pedro Jordano
The functional or structural linkage among traits (phenotypic integration; PI) within complex structures can constrain the evolutionary response of individual traits. To analyse whether frugivores with distinct sensory ecology have shaped the patterns of fruit diversification differently, we compared PI values of fleshy fruits that are consumed by birds and mammals. We used phylogenetic comparative analyses of PI among 13 morphological, nutritional and visual fruit traits from 111 Mediterranean plant species. Results showed that morphological...
