Data from: Macroevolutionary integration of phenotypes within and across ant worker castes

Nicholas R. Friedman, Beatrice Bennet, Georg Fischer, Eli Sarnat, Jen-Pan Huang, Lacey Knowles & Evan Economo
Phenotypic traits are often integrated into evolutionary modules: sets of organismal parts that evolve together. In social insect colonies the concepts of integration and modularity apply to sets of traits both within and among functionally and phenotypically differentiated castes. On macroevolutionary timescales, patterns of integration and modularity within and across castes can be clues to the selective and ecological factors shaping their evolution and diversification. We develop a set of hypotheses describing contrasting patterns of...
