Appendix S1 Community sites, taxon composition, body size (TL), mass, biome and references.
Appendix S2 Local community statistics for total length (TL) and mass which include (A) location of sites, mode, mean, number of taxa, values for skewing and kurtosis and (B) significance for skewing, kurtosis and evenness and biome.
Appendix S3 Species and genes obtained from GenBank for the three snake groups (Lampropeltini, Thamnophiini, and Crotalinae) examined here.
Appendix S4 Description of taxa used and tree fossil placement for inference of dated phylogenies from Lampropeltini, Crotalinae and Thamnophiini.
Appendix S5 The first four tables show statistics for Moran's I for significant autocorrelation in skewing and kurtosis across communities of snakes in North America for mass and total length. The next four tables show the results from the CAR (conditional autoregressive model) analyses for skew and kurtosis for mass and total length and latitude, while accounting for number of taxa. The last four tables show the results from the CAR analysis for skew and kurtosis for mass and total length and longitude, while accounting for number of taxa.
