Data from: Fractal geometry of a complex plumage trait reveals bird's quality

Lorenzo Pérez-Rodríguez, Roger Jovani & François Mougeot
Animal coloration is key in natural and sexual selection, playing significant roles in intra- and interspecific communication because of its linkage to individual behaviour, genetics and physiology. Simple animal traits such as the area or the colour intensity of homogeneous patches have been profusely studied. More complex patterns are widespread in nature, but they escape our understanding because their variation is difficult to capture effectively by standard, simple measures. Here, we used fractal geometry to...
