Environmental signal in the evolutionary diversification of bird skeletons

Abstract:

Characterizing how variation in the tempo and mode of evolution has structured the phenotypic diversity of extant species is a central goal of macroevolution1,2,3. However, studies are typically limited to a handful of traits4,5,6, providing incomplete information. We analyse morphological diversification in living birds, an ecologically diverse group7, documenting structural scales from ‘pan-skeletal’ proportions down to the localized three-dimensional shape changes of individual bones. We f...
