  1. Results of non-parametric MANOVA testing clustering due to phylogeny and diet in the morphospace. All results were highly significant. Sample sizes were 132 genera for of Phylogeny and Diet, 101 for the limited phylogenetic groupings (5+ representatives per group), and 127 for the reduced dietary analysis (without extreme outliers, of which four were artiodactyls and one an arctostylopid).
