Data from: Testing adaptive hypotheses on the evolution of larval life history in acorn and stalked barnacles

Christine Ewers-Saucedo & Paula Pappalardo
Despite strong selective pressure to optimize larval life history in marine environments, there is a wide diversity with regard to developmental mode, size and time larvae spend in the plankton. In the present study, we assessed if adaptive hypotheses explain the distribution of the larval life history of thoracican barnacles within a strict phylogenetic framework. We collected environmental and larval trait data for 170 species from the literature, and utilized a complete thoracican synthesis tree...
