  1. Shape differences were tested on the set of PCs explaining more than 5% of the total variance, using a multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and its non-parametric analogue (npMANOVA) based on 10000 permutations between Euclidean distances. Probabilities are provided; in bold those significant.
