Analysis of morphological groupings using ANOPA, a pattern recognition and multivariate statistical method: a case Study involving centrarchid fishes.
By mapping these measurements onto the centrarchid family tree, together with data on what each fish eats, the researchers were able to reconstruct how diet and head shape have changed over time.
To find out, the researchers examined museum specimens representing 29 species of centrarchid fishes.
The study, Identification of centrarchid hepcidins and evidence that 17â-estradiol disrupts constitutive expression of hepcidin-1 and inducible expression of hepcidin-2 in largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), was just published in the journal, Fish & Shellfish Immunology.
