Title Hook metadata
Downloaded 8 times
Description Tabstop-delimited .txt file. This file contains basic information about the micro-hooks investigated in this study. The columns contain the following: (1) Belemnite specimen: The number of the specimen, 1-3. (2) Hook name, morphological analysis: The label of the hook, corresponding to the labels used throughout the article and in the other data files. (3) Hook running number, fossil: The running number of the hook according to the catalogization on the rock sample. This information is only of interest if one wants to work with the sample specimens and needs to find a particular hook. (4) Hook cross sectional area [mm2], replication 1: The cross-sectional area of the hook (in square-millimetres) as measured during the first replication of the outline extraction. (5) Hook cross sectional area [mm2], replication 2: The cross-sectional area of the hook (in square-millimetres) as measured during the second replication of the outline extraction. (6) Hook distance to mouth [mm]: The measured distance of the hook to the presumed mouth of the belemnoid (in millimetres). Values for this parameter have only been measured for Specimen 1, because it was the only one which was preserved well enough to estimate the position of the mouth, and also there the value could not be measured for all hooks. Missing values are encoded as NA.

Title Supplement Figure 1
Downloaded 8 times
Description Image in .jpg format. This file contains a visualization and describing caption of several stages of the outline analysis of the micro-hooks performed in this study. It includes: (1) The choice of the number of outline points extracted. (2) The choice of the amount of smoothing applied to the raw outline coordinates. (3) The choice of the number of harmonics that were calculated during the normalized elliptic Fourier analysis.

Title Raw outline coordinates
Downloaded 4 times
Description Morphometric data file in .nts format. This file contains 70 x- and y-coordinates of the raw outlines of all 87 micro-hooks investigated in this study, across two replications of outline extraction (marked as ".R1" and ".R2" in the row labels). The data are provided as .nts file standard. The first line contains the metadata. The second line contains the row labels. The remaining lines contain the outline coordinates. Each line represents one individual hook. The coordinates are given in pairs of x and y. So the first value in the third line is the x-coordinate of the first outline point of hook number 1, the second value in the third line is the corresponding y-coordinate, the third value in the same line is the x-coordinate of the second outline point, the fourth value is the corresponding y-coordinate, and so forth.

Title Harmonic coefficients
Downloaded 5 times
Description Tabstop-delimited .txt file. This file contains the first ten harmonic coefficients for 87 micro-hooks investigated in this study across the two replicated outline extractions. The coefficients were derived from a normalized elliptic Fourier analysis with conserved starting point (tip of the hook) and normalization of the outline orientation on the basis of the longest axis of the ellipse described by the first harmonic. The first column contains the specimen label, O 1 to O 87. The second column contains the number of the replication, 1 or 2. The remaining columns contain the harmonic coefficients. The first to tenth harmonic coefficient are grouped by their components, and each component is numbered in the column header to indicate to which harmonic it belongs: (1) Columns 3-12 contain component A of the first ten harmonics. (2) Columns 13-22 contain component B of the first ten harmonics. (3) Columns 23-32 contain component C of the first ten harmonics. (4) Columns 33-42 contain component D of the first ten harmonics. (5) Columns 43-44 contain the zeroth harmonic ao and co.
