Abstract/Context: The majority of the data that are included are in the form of photographs of specimens formatted into figures. The organisms that are figured include ants (Barlow et al., 2019), horseshoe crabs - both live and fossil (Bicknell et al., 2018d; Bicknell et al., 2018e; Bicknell and Pates, in press) - , Cambrian aged trilobites (Pates et al., 2017; Bicknell and Paterson, 2018; Pates and Bicknell, 2019) and other other Cambrian aged arthropods and fossils (Bicknell et al., 2018c; Bicknell and Paterson, 2018). Two examples of Ediacaran organisms are also figured (Paterson et al., 2017; Bicknell and Paterson, 2018). These data allow for specimens to be depicted and discussed.
Other data include figures that are made from CT and micro-CT data of horseshoe crabs (Bicknell et al., 2018b; Bicknell et al., 2018c). Related to these data are the raw micro-CT scans and CT scans (Bicknell et al., 2018b; Bicknell et al., 2018c) and the results of the biomechanical analyses (Bicknell et al., 2018c).
Finally, morphometric (shape) data are included and were used to explore shape change, evolution, and population dynamics (Paterson et al., 2017; Pates et al., 2017; Bicknell et al., 2018a).
