Lepidosaur bite-force data

Data from paper: Clade-wide variation in bite-force performance is determined primarily by size not ecology. https://doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2021.2493

Justin E Isip, Marc EH Jones and Natalie Cooper. 2022. Clade-wide variation in bite-force performance is determined primarily by size not ecology. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2021.2493.

These are the data required for the analyses. Full metadata are provided for the raw data, and the data used to build the sub-datasets for each analysis. All are included here for completeness. For more details see https://github.com/nhcooper123/lepidosaur-biteforce.

Additional data

The ecological data are all from Meiri et al (2018). Please cite this paper if you use these data!
