Unexpectedly rapid evolution of mandibular shape in hominins

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5943523
PMID: 29743608
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25309-8

[…] tion of anatomical objects after removing non-shape variation (i.e. as related to size, position and orientation of the objects) by applying Generalized Procrustes Superimposition (GPA). By using the TpsRelw software ver. 1.53 we performed Relative Warps Analysis on aligned coordinates (RWA) to decompose shape variation into orthogonal axes of maximum variance.For this study we collected (either b […]


Morphometric assessment of pterosaur jaw disparity

R Soc Open Sci
PMCID: 5936930
PMID: 29765665
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.172130

[…] ch, allometry was assessed based on a multivariate regression of the Procrustes-aligned coordinates and log-transformed centroid size. Centroid size was calculated from the landmark coordinates using tpsRelw []. The statistical significance for each correlation test was assessed with permutation tests using 9999 iterations. All correlation tests were performed in the R package geomorph []. […]


Delineating modern variation from extinct morphology in the fossil record using shells of the Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina)

PLoS One
PMCID: 5841793
PMID: 29513709
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193437

[…] quare root of the sum of squared distances of landmarks from the centroid, then fitted semilandmarks and performed generalized Procrustes superposition to produce sets of aligned coordinates [] using tpsRelw1.49 []. Minimization of Procrustes distance was used as the criterion for sliding semilandmarks. Data were reformatted in R using custom scripts reposited with other analytical code. The posit […]


Phylogeography and DNA based species delimitation provide insight into the taxonomy of the polymorphic rose chafer Protaetia (Potosia) cuprea species complex (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Cetoniinae) in the Western Palearctic

PLoS One
PMCID: 5819786
PMID: 29462164
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192349

[…] extracted outline curves were subsequently converted into a set of 98 semi-landmarks and 2 landmarks using TPSUtil 1.44 []. These curves produce a measure that is independent of size in this sample. TpsRelw 1.49 [] was employed to display the shape variation among the specimens. Landmarks were superimposed by a generalized Procrustes analysis; corresponding (homologous) landmarks were arranged ov […]


Subtle variation in size and shape of the whole forewing and the red band among co‐mimics revealed by geometric morphometric analysis in Heliconius butterflies

Ecol Evol

[…] hole forewing and the red band was explored using principal components analyses. Analyses of shape variation, based on the first two principal components of the wing and red band, were conducted with TPSRelw 1.49 (Rohlf, ) and edited in CorelDraw software. The consensus configurations for the whole forewing and the red band were obtained for each mimetic‐ring member. Then, we carried out a multiva […]


Identification, sexual dimorphism, and allometric effects of three psyllid species of the genus Psyllopsis by geometric morphometric analysis (Hemiptera, Liviidae)

PMCID: 5904406
PMID: 29674872
DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.737.11560

[…] warp scores or PWs, which were generated by thin-plate spline equation, were used as a data matrix to compare shapes among the three species. Centroid sizes—as a size measure—were also calculated by tpsRelw () and used to compare the wing size between the three species ().One-way MANOVAs were designed to detect any significant differences in wing shape between species. An ANOVA procedure and Tuke […]
