Data for: Are feeding modes concealing morphofunctional diversity? The case of the New World Parrotfishes

Lucía Pombo-Ayora & Jose Tavera
In functional ecology, morphology is expected to reflect function, however, occasional decoupling of these two can be found. We did not find a relationship between feeding functional morphology and feeding modes of the American parrotfishes of the genera Scarus and Sparisoma. We explore some possible morpho-functional reasons for this phenomenon and reconsider the functional diversity within the scrapers. A phylogenetic tree including 50 species of parrotfishes, based on 12 genes, was reconstructed over which all...
