Figure 1

Log10(femur length)-log10(body mass) relationships for three major dinosaur clades: (a) Ornithischia (y = 3.0587x−2.7042; r2 = 0.93), (b) Sauropodomorpha (y = 2.3459x−0.2935; r2 = 0.73) and (c) Theropoda (y = 3.1854x−3.1840; r2 = 0.97).

The data sources for these relationships are shown in Table 1.
