Discriminant and classification analysis based on lizard morphology. Classification analysis of lizards in four species of Pholidobolus based on the whole set of meristic and morphometric traits A distribution of individuals (dots) of the recovered phylogenetic clades (colours) in the two-dimensional phenotypic space created by the discriminant analysis of principal components (DAPC) summarising all traits B actual (dot colour) and predicted (bar colour) membership of each lizard (museum identity) to the recovered clades; predicted membership is estimated from the DAPC and represents the probability of assignment of each lizard to one or more lineages (colours). See Methods for further detail on the underlying statistical analyses.
