The codes “mkhar” and “mkiev” do not represent established abbreviations of the corresponding museums and used for simplicity. Comment 2. This data table does not include Sample 3 (South Sweden) and Sample 9 (Russia, Ciscaucasia 1) because for these samples we used published mean values (respectively, Olsson, 1988 and Ushkalova, 1976). Comment 3. SVL-values for Sample 4 (Poland) were obtained by extracting log(SVL)-values from published scatterplots (Borczyk & Paśko, 2011: Fig. 1, A,B) and subsequent re-calculating the raw values using the exponent function. Comment 4. SVL-values for Sample 10 (Russia, Ciscaucasia 2) and Sample 11 (Russia, Ryazan Region) were obtained from published histograms (respectively, Lukina, 1966: Fig. 22 and Zharkova, 1973: Fig. 4). Comment 5. SVL-values for the other samples are original data of the authors.
