From: Functional ecological convergence between the thylacine and small prey-focused canids

Module Prey Size Group Discrimination
Total group (n = 206) Placentalia (n = 170) Marsupialia (n = 36)
Total (cranium) 87.4% 87.1% 88.9%
Facial 80.1% 78.2% 88.9%
Neurocranial 87.4% 87.1% 88.9%
  1. Percentage of correct relative prey size group attribution within each dataset. Cross-validation is by leave-one-out jack-knife method
