Data from: Universal metabolic constraints shape the evolutionary ecology of diving in animals

Wilco Verberk, Piero Calosi, Francois Brischoux, John Spicer, Theodore Garland & David Bilton
Diving as a lifestyle has evolved on multiple occasions when air-breathing terrestrial animals invaded the aquatic realm, and diving performance shapes the ecology and behaviour of all air-breathing aquatic taxa, from small insects to great whales. Using the largest dataset yet assembled, we show that maximum dive duration increases predictably with body mass in both ectotherms and endotherms. Compared to endotherms, ectotherms can remain submerged for longer, but the mass scaling relationship for dive duration...
