Figure 1. PCA score plot for ruminants classified according to feeding strategy. Ecological classifications are given in S1. The convex hulls represent a morphospace constrained by the extreme data points within the range envelope. Scores for the species used to define this space are in the PCA scores tab of S1.
Figure 2. PCA score plot for ruminants classified according to their feeding strategy, with ‘intermediates’ projected into the space.
Figure 3. Browsers and grazers in canonical variates space. The occupation of distinct discriminant spaces is clear, although not absolute.
Figure 4. CVA score plot for ruminants classified according to their feeding strategy, with ‘intermediates’ projected into the space.
Figure 5. Strobe plots of the CV model axes in PC space for browsers and grazers. The right-hand column is an overlay plot, showing the progressive geometric deformation between model points on each axis.
Figure 6. Relationship between log-transformed centroid size and body mass in browsing and grazing ruminants.
