Intraspecific variation in harbour porpoise cochleae

Data from paper Intraspecific variation in harbour porpoise ( Phocoena phocoena ) cochleae and its implications for comparative studies across odontocetes.

Martins MCI, Park T, Racicot R, Cooper N. 2020. Intraspecific variation in the cochleae of harbour porpoises Phocoena phocoena and its implications for comparative studies across odontocetes. PeerJ 8:e8916 https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.8916

The analyses require the two tidied datasets odontocete-data-landmarks.csv and odontocete-data-linear.csv. Raw data sources used to build these are cochlea-measurements.csv, curves.csv, echo-metadata.csv and landmark data for each species which is either provided here for all Phocoena phocoena specimens, or can be found at https://doi.org/10.5519/0082968 for other odontocetes.
