Data from: Environmental and scale-dependent evolutionary trends in the body size of crustaceans

Adiël A. Klompmaker, Carrie E. Schweitzer, Rodney M. Feldmann & Michał Kowalewski
The ecological and physiological significance of body size is well recognized. However, key macroevolutionary questions regarding the dependency of body size trends on the taxonomic scale of analysis and the role of environment in controlling long-term evolution of body size are largely unknown. Here, we evaluate these issues for decapod crustaceans, a group that diversified in the Mesozoic. A compilation of body size data for 792 brachyuran crab and lobster species reveals that their maximum,...
