Slope and intercept comparisons of stylopodial scaling patterns in mammalian clades. 



Standardized major axis equation shown in the format y = mx + b. Symbols: (°) represents differences at 90 to 95% (0.1 <P > 0.05); (*) at 9599% (0.05 <P > 0.01); and (**) at greater than 95% (P < 0.01). Otherwise, Pvalues are > 0.1. All Pvalues are adjusted for multiple comparisons using FDR. Hyphens () represent duplicate comparisons. Significant differences using 95% CI are assessed on whether the intervals overlap or not; nonoverlapping comparisons are indicated with an asterisk (*). 95% CI, comparisons based on 95% confidence intervals; b', intercept adjusted to correspond to the minimum value along the xaxis; BM, body mass; C_{F}, femoral circumference; C_{H}, humeral circumference; C_{H+F}, total humeral and femoral circumference; FDR, false discovery rate; L_{F}, femoral length; L_{H}, humeral length; LRT, comparisons based on a likelihood ratio test (slope only); ttest, comparisons based on a twotailed ttest (intercept only).
