Data from: Basal metabolic rate can evolve independently of morphological and behavioural traits

Kimberley J. Mathot, Katrin Martin, Bart Kempenaers & Wolfgang Forstmeier
Quantitative genetic analyses of basal metabolic rate (BMR) can inform us about the evolvability of the trait by providing estimates of heritability but also of genetic correlations with other traits that may constrain the ability of BMR to respond to selection. Here we studied a captive population of zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) in which selection lines for male courtship rate have been established. We measure BMR in these lines to see whether selection on male...
