Size variation provides important clues about the taxonomy, morphology, behavior, and life history of extinct species. Body size variation in living species is commonly attributed to Bergmann’s rule, resource availability, nutrition, local selection pressures, and sexual size dimorphism. While our understanding of the mechanisms producing size variation in living species has grown more sophisticated in recent years, our ability to apply this knowledge to the fossil record is limited by the… Expand
