Constancy of variation/covariation structure among populations is frequently assumed in order to measure the differential selective forces which have caused population differentiation through evolutionary time. Following Steppan ([1997] Evolution 51:571-594), this assumption is examined among closely related tamarin species (genus Saguinus), using two distinct approaches applied to the task of evaluating similarity in patterns of morphological variation: common principal component analysis and… CONTINUE READING
