Evolutionary and morphological patterns underlying carnivoran body shape diversity

Chris Law
The diversity of body shapes is one of the most prominent features of phenotypic variation in vertebrates. Biologists, however, still lack a full understanding of the underlying morphological components that contribute to its diversity, particularly in endothermic vertebrates such as mammals. In this study, I tested hypotheses pertaining to the evolution of the cranial and axial components that contribute to the diversity of carnivoran body shapes. I found three trends in the evolution of carnivoran...
