Data from: Allometric constraints and the evolution of allometry

Kjetil Lysne Voje, Thomas F. Hansen, Camilla K. Egset, Geir H. Bolstad & Christophe Pélabon
Morphological traits often covary within and among species according to simple power laws referred to as allometry. Such allometric relationships may result from common growth regulation, and this has given rise to the hypothesis that allometric exponents may have low evolvability and constrain trait evolution. We formalize hypotheses for how allometry may constrain morphological trait evolution across taxa, and test these using more than 300 empirical estimates of static (within-species) allometric relations of animal morphological...
