Figure 3.

Limb scaling patterns in different mammalian size classes. Lines are fitted based on the SMA results presented in Table 4. All three comparisons plot the log total stylopodial circumference against log body mass in the mammalian sample of the dataset. Size class comparisons are based on previously studied thresholds discussed in the text [78,93,94]. Mammals above and below 20 kg (A), 50 kg (B), and 100 kg (C). SMA, standardized major axis.
