Fig. 3

Allometry of sternum centroid size against body size. Log-transformed cube-root body mass is plotted against log-transformed centroid size, with each point representing an individual specimen. The solid line is the regression line corresponding to the presence of forelimb propulsion in the pGLS model size ~ body mass + forelimb propulsion. The intercept shown on this plot incorporates the coefficient value for forelimb propulsion in the model. Datapoint colours and symbols indicate the predominant locomotory mode of each species (legend provided). Test statistics provided in Table 2
