Description Information on testicular melanization, body mass (g), mitochondrial DNA substitution rate, and eu- and pheomelanin-based plumage coloration in 134 species of birds. TM: number of individuals with testicular melanization during the breeding and non-breeding seasons, and during periods that could not be assigned to any phase of the reproductive cycle (i.e. unknown dates). '-' means absence of data for the corresponding reproductive phase. Total N: total number of individuals examined. EB: eumelanin-based plumage color score. PB: pheomelanin-based plumage color score. Mutation rate refers to species-specific mtDNA base pair substitution rate as reported by Nabholz et al. (2008, 2009). All data except substitution rate are for adult males.
