Hello, my name is Diego and I'm currently undertaking a Master's program in Mexico. One of my thesis project involves a geometric morphometrics study on the shape of a freshwater fish which distributes across Central America. I'm currently having trouble with a concept that will probably be very simple to most of you, but which I haven't found a way to get my head around.
I'm running a CVA on MorphoJ, dividing my dataset into two geographically distinct groups. I run the test and change the type of graph to a "Warped Outline Drawing". So now the graph is showing a "starting shape" which I interpret as it being the average of all my landmark data (both geographical groupings), however I'm not sure on how to interpret the "target shape". I was expecting to have two "target shapes", one for each of the geographical groupings. Could someone please help point out my misunderstanding and offer me a way on how to interpret the "target shape"? Thank you, I'll be very thankful Diego Ardón -- 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.
