Craig McClain's paper from the Body Size Working Group

NESCent's Assistant Director of Science, Craig McClain, is also a member of the Phanerozoic Body Size Trends in Time and Space working group. Craig developed a database of metazoan body sizes which he and fellow group member Alison Boyer used to analyze the link between biodiversity and body size ranges for metazoans. Their work has been published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.
