Title Shorebird measurements, museum specimens
Downloaded 15 times
Description This excel file includes two tabs, one with all individual-level measurements and one with all species-level measurements. Individual-level data include wing length and bill length, depth and width measured on museum specimens. Bill traits were measured three times for each individual to control for measurement error. Species-level life history traits (mass, incubation length, age at first flight) were compiled from the literature. Please see "methods" for more detail on data collection and analysis.

Title Sparrow and waterfowl data, compiled from literature
Downloaded 48 times
Description This excel file includes one tab of species-level data. For each species, data on life history traits (mass, incubation length, time of first flight) were taken from the literature. Data on the phenotypic range of traits (bill length and tarsus length) within bird populations were taken from appendices of the "Birds of North America Life History" series. Please see the methods section for more information on data collection and analysis.
