  2. Traits are measured as differences in values between sister-pairs of mammalian clades. Co-efficient: estimated co-efficient of the predictor variable; R2 = co-efficient of determination; d.f: degrees of freedom in model; P value: significance of value of model; Significance: * = P < 0.05, ** = P < 0.005.
