Data from: Ecological and phylogenetic variability in the spinalis muscle of snakes

Jessica L. Tingle, Gabriel E.A. Gartner, Bruce C. Jayne, , G. E. A. Gartner & T. Garland
Understanding the origin and maintenance of functionally important subordinate traits is a major goal of evolutionary physiologists and ecomorphologists. Within the confines of a limbless body plan, snakes are diverse in terms of body size and ecology, but we know little about the functional traits that underlie this diversity. We used a phylogenetically diverse group of 131 snake species to examine associations between habitat use, sidewinding locomotion, and constriction behavior with the number of body...
