New Article: Adult and offspring size in the ocean data paper

Our data paper, Adult and offspring size in the ocean: A database of size metrics and conversion factors, is posted as an Accepted Article over at Ecology.  The database contains adult and offspring size estimates (and associated conversion factors) for marine species covering >17 orders of magnitude in body mass.  The work is a collaboration with the Centre for Ocean Life and accompanies our papers:
