Dear All I am analyzing 3D coordinates from non-human primate molars. I have in the same dataset coordinate data for M1, M2 y M3. I performed multivariate analysis using the size and shape (form) of all teeth together (M1, M2 and M3). Now I am interested in perform analysis comparing individual teeth, so I used the option Subdivide Dataset by and I divided my dataset by tooth class. Subsequently, in order to perform multivaraite analysis I used the option combine data set and I combined my M1 data for all species in one dataset. The same procedure was used for M2 and M3. Since I am interested in the shape component I done a multivariate regression of the procrustes coordinates on the CS. I obtained a new dataset free of the allometric component. I followed the same procedure to subdivide the general dataset into individual datasets representing each molar teeth. However, when I tried to combine my shape dataset is not posible, simply the shape dataset was not present in the datasets available to combine the datasets, only the form datasets are available to make the combination. So I cant performed statistical analysis by individual teeth using the residuals of the multivariate regression (i.e.,shape).
Somebody have suggestions on how I can divide my dataset in indidivdual teeth in order to perform statistical analyses? and why the combine dataset option apparently doesnt work for my shape data? any suggestion or advise is more than wellcome best regards Pablo -- MORPHMET may be accessed via its webpage at http://www.morphometrics.org --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "MORPHMET" group.
