Data from: Geometric morphometric character suites as phylogenetic data: extracting phylogenetic signal from gastropod shells

Ursula E. Smith & Jonathan R. Hendricks
Despite being the objects of numerous macroevolutionary studies, many of the best-represented constituents of the fossil record—including diverse examples such as foraminifera, brachiopods, and mollusks—have mineralized skeletons with limited discrete characteristics, making morphological phylogenies difficult to construct. In contrast to their paucity of phylogenetic characters, the mineralized structures (tests and shells) of these fossil groups frequently have distinctive shapes that have long proved useful for their classification. The recent introduction of methodologies for including continuous...
