Bone microanatomy appears to track changes in various physiological or ecological properties of the individual or the taxon. Analyses of sections of the tibia of 99 taxa show a highly significant (P ≤ 0.005) relationship between long‐bone microanatomy and habitat. Randomization tests reveal a highly significant (P ≤ 0.005) phylogenetic signal on several compactness profile parameters and lifestyle. Discriminant analyses yield an inference model which has a success rate of 63% when lifestyle is… Expand
