Data from: The effect of brain size evolution on feeding propensity, digestive efficiency and juvenile growth

Alexander Kotrschal, Alberto Corral-Lopez, Sönke Szidat & Niclas Kolm
One key hypothesis in the study of brain size evolution is the expensive tissue hypothesis; the idea that increased investment into the brain should be compensated by decreased investment into other costly organs, for instance the gut. While the hypothesis is supported by both comparative and experimental evidence, little is known about the potential changes in energetic requirements or digestive traits following such evolutionary shifts in brain and gut size. Organisms may meet the greater...
