Data from: Ecological and phylogenetic dimensions of the cranial shape diversification in South American caviomorph rodents (Rodentia: Hystricomorpha)

Alicia Álvarez, S. Ivan Perez & Diego H. Verzi
Caviomorph rodents represent an excellent model to explore morphological diversification on a macroevolutionary scale, as they are ecologically and morphologically diverse. We analysed cranial shape variation using geometric morphometrics and phylogenetic comparative methods. Most variation involved the shape of the rostrum, basicranium, and cranial vault, and clearly matched the phylogenetic structure. At the same time, a strong allometric pattern was associated with the length of the rostrum and cranial vault, size of the auditory bulla,...
