The Raw Data from morphometric measurements is difficult
to visualise if presented in tabular form.
The Scattergram is the
simplest tool, and providing there is enough points in it the centre
of the pattern and the degree of spread can be readily discerned.
Graphic "3D" representation is something that I have
thought would make the discerning on the number of sub strains
easier. This would have the density of the points in a scattergram
added as a "Z" axis. The resulting diagram would show a three
dimensional picture, such a diagram would show individual mounds
centred on the racial norm for each race that was represented in a
Overlaying many transparent wing photos (Each reduced to
black and white and contrast enhanced) from the same sample of bees
would make a composite picture. Such a composite of many overlaid
transparencies may well be revealing. I have a feeling that some
parts of the structure will vary more than others and such a
multiple picture would show some lines thicker than others. The
information itself would not be "new" but the different presentation
may give insight and understanding of some of the variation.
