Table 8

Canonical loadings (i.e. correlations) for all populations between traits and each canonical axis in the overall discriminant functional analysis (DFA) concerning the effect of standard length. Traits with correlations that are greater than or equal to an absolute value of 0.4 are considered to have biologically significant relationships (in boldface; McGarigal et al., 2000).
