Data from: Geckos as springs: mechanics explain across-species scaling of adhesion

Casey A. Gilman, Michael J. Imburgia, Michael D. Bartlett, Daniel R. King, Alfred J. Crosby & Duncan J. Irschick
One of the central controversies regarding the evolution of adhesion concerns how adhesive force scales as animals change in size, either among or within species. A widely held view is that as animals become larger, the primary mechanism that enables them to climb is increasing pad area. However, prior studies show that much of the variation in maximum adhesive force remains unexplained, even when area is accounted for. We tested the hypothesis that maximum adhesive...
