  1. Body size data from the ODCL dataset (log-transformed cranial measurement, in millimetres). Number of species in each category: 45 (terrestrial), 100 (semi-aquatic/freshwater), and 50 (aquatic/marine). Results from ANOVA, without accounting for phylogenetic dependency, and phylogenetic ANOVA [146] with 100,000 simulations
  2. *Bonferroni-corrected p-values (q-values) significant at alpha = 0.05
