Data from: The coevolution of innovation and technical intelligence in primates

Ana F. Navarrete, Simon M. Reader, Sally E. Street, Andrew Whalen & Kevin N. Laland
In birds and primates, the frequency of behavioural innovation has been shown to covary with absolute and relative brain size, leading to the suggestion that large brains allow animals to innovate, and/or that selection for innovativeness, together with social learning, may have driven brain enlargement. We examined the relationship between primate brain size and both technical (i.e. tool using) and non-technical innovation, deploying a combination of phylogenetically informed regression and exploratory causal graph analyses. Regression...
