The inter-individual Procrustes distances were computed among the four groups (WLA and PWK parents, F1 and F2 hybrids) for the complete mandible and its partition into two (alveolar + ramus) and five (incisor zone, molar zone, coronoid, condylar and angular processes) modules. The degree of integration was evaluated by Mantel-t tests providing a coefficient of matrix correlation R (below the diagonal) and the probability that correlation between random matrices is less than observed (above the diagonal). In bold, significant correlations at 5% (P > 0.95%).
