Table S1. List of all resurveyed field sites by state, latitude, longitude, elevation and species analyzed.
Figure S1. Change in Haldane Ratio, the standardized difference in mean body size per generation, relative to within-population standard deviation among populations, species, and body size categories (CRI = −0.002, 0.001). Each triangle represents the average change in Haldane Ratio for each population for each species of Plethodon salamander. Species are listed from smallest to largest in average body size. The horizontal dotted line indicates no change.
Figure S2. Latitudinal variation in reduction in body size for the full dataset of 16 species of Plethodon salamanders (β1 = 0.014; 95% CRI = 0.004, 0.025). Color of each dot indicates the amount of change in Haldane Ratio (the standardized difference in mean body size per generation, relative to within-population standard deviation) with ‘hotter’ colors indicating more change and ‘cooler’ colors indicating less change.
