This is one of the few studies testing Bergmann's rule in a tropical taxon, demonstrating two patterns of size variation in a canid species: populations south of the Equator follow Bergmann's rule while Northern populations reflect the opposite. The study implicates historical factors, local adaptation and genetic drift in influencing this deviation from Bergmann's rule.
