Data from: Ontogenetic and stratigraphic influence on observed phenotypic integration in the limb skeleton of a fossil tetrapod

Erin E. Maxwell & T. Alexander Dececchi
Understanding morphological integration is one of the central goals of evolutionary developmental biology. Despite its applicability to questions of paleontological interest, there are few studies on integration in fossil vertebrates. In this study, we examine limb integration in the Lower Jurassic ichthyosaur Stenopterygius quadriscissus, with the aim of examining the effect of ontogeny and anagenetic changes over short geological time spans on metrics of limb integration. Both ontogenetic and stratigraphic effects had a significant influence...
