Data from: Specialized specialists and the narrow niche fallacy: a tale of scale-feeding fishes

Matthew A. Kolmann, Jonathan M. Huie, Kory Evans & Adam P. Summers
Although rare within the context of 30,000 species of extant fishes, scale-feeding as an ecological strategy has evolved repeatedly across the teleost tree of life. Scale-feeding (lepidophagous) fishes are diverse in terms of their ecology, behavior, and specialized morphologies for grazing on scales and mucus of sympatric species. Despite this diversity, the underlying ontogenetic changes in functional and biomechanical properties of associated feeding morphologies in lepidophagous fishes are less understood. We examined the ontogeny of...
