Limb scaling patterns in quadrupedal terrestrial tetrapods. Lines are fitted based on the SMA results presented in Table 1. Lissamphibians are plotted (green) but no line was fitted due to its small sample size and body mass range. (A) Log femoral length and circumference plotted against log body mass. (B) Log humeral length and circumference against log body mass. (C) Log femoral length plotted against log humeral length. (D) The log combined humeral and femoral circumference against log body mass. SMA, standardized major axis.
