Hi all, I'm trying to run an integration test in geomorph, or rather phylo.integration on 2 sets of Procrustes aligned coordinates for cranium and jaws of lizards, landmarked on both sides. When I plot the results I get graphs of the landmarks for the positive and negative extremes of PLS1&2, but for the cranium they are in lateral view while for the mandibles they are in frontal view. I'm wondering if this is an issue for the estimation of r-PLS, since in Adams & Felice 2004 (PLoS ONE: Assessing Trait Covariation and Morphological Integration on Phylogenies Using Evolutionary Covariance Matrices), they write "the position of the jaw was standardized relative to the skull by rotating the jaw to a common articulation angle among specimens".
If it is an issue, how do I rotate the position of one of the partitions to be in the same orientation as the other? Thanks for any advice!
