[…] using the variance-covariance matrix of generalized least-squares superimposition residuals. pairwise procrustes distance was used to compare the mean shape between morphogroups using the software morphoj version 1.05 [], and the results were evaluated with a permutation test (10,000 iterations). the misclassification rate of the morphogroups was assessed by a cross-validation analysis […]

[…] of the landmarks, which filters out the location, scale, and rotational information of the landmarks (rohlf & slice, ), and centroid size (cs) were calculated with both coordgen8 (sheets, ) and morphoj v.1.06 (klingenberg, ). cs is calculated as the square root of the summed squared distances of each landmark from the centroid of the landmark configuration (bookstein, ). this cs value […]

[…] package geomorph v. 3.0.3 []. analyses of the dataset were carried out in r v. 3.3.2 [] using the packages geomorph v. 3.0.3 [], morpho v. [], phytools [] and phylotools v. 0.1.2 [], and in morphoj v. 1.06d []. figure 2., a canonical variates analysis (cva) was used to display the separation of the various groups in shape space. this analysis was first run in r using the package morpho […]

[…] of the brain at the point of transition between midbrain and hindbrain; (5) transition point between hindbrain and spinal cord; and (6) and (7) lateral outermost points of the head along the eyes. morphoj software was used for canonical variate analysis, to quantify and graphically represent change in brain regions in relation to head shape. morphoj software was also used to calculate […]

[…] in symmetrical views of the shell were estimated using osymm []. in order to avoid statistical problems of inflated degrees of freedom associated with analysis of symmetrical objects [], i used morphoj [] to reflect symmetrical landmarks and used only the symmetrical component of one half of shells including midline landmarks for further analyses of symmetrical views. although only one half […]
