A total of 84 specimens (41 females and 43 males) were analyzed. Eighteen landmark points were digitized on the specimens from whom relative warp scores were derived. Discriminant function analysis and thin-plate spline plot showed significant difference between body shape of the sexes… CONTINUE READING
