Morphometric data was collected using a Microscribe.
Table of species dietary data
Dietary data based on semantic analysis of the literature. Contains 13 dietary categories for 40 canid species.
Table of Genebank accession numbers for analyzed genes
Table containing the accession number for the genes used in the dating of the phylogenetic tree. Contains genetic information for 38 canid species plus 4 outgroups.
Dated phylogeny used in all comparative analysis.
Average measures for each species
Mean values for each log-measurement for each species. Contain 40 measurements for 39 species.
Phenotypic covariance matrix for morphometric traits
40x40 covariance P matrix for the within-group pattern of co/variation.
Morphological vectors associated to ecological change
Diet-specific morphological changes (Δzdiet) and selection gradients (βdiet)
Table containing formulas used in the linear models used to control for sources of within-species patterns of variation before calculating patterns of within-group covariance.
