Data from: Connecting proximate mechanisms and evolutionary patterns: pituitary gland size and mammalian life history

Jason M. Kamilar & Stacey R. Tecot
At the proximate level, hormones are known to play a critical role in influencing the life history of mammals, including humans. The pituitary gland is directly responsible for producing several hormones, including those related to growth and reproduction. Although we have a basic understanding of how hormones affect life history characteristics, we still have little knowledge of this relationship in an evolutionary context. We used data from 129 mammal species representing 14 orders to investigate...
