Noctuid Wing Landmarks
Principle Components of Shape

Top three principle components of variation in geometric form of the thirteen common core landmarks of noctuid moth wings. The geometric form of the landmarks was evaluated with the thin plate spline program tpsRelw of F. James Rohlf. The principle components SV1, SV2 and SV3, exported from the tpsRelw program were plotted with the stereo option of Mage to produce the above image.
