  • Leg-segment shapes in angular offsets from control population allometric baselines.

  • D1 is the width of segment at widest point; D2 is the width of the same segment at narrowest proximal part. Sample size is 100 males for each mean. ***, P < 10-6. Wing-shape values from means of nonrecombinant lines are included for comparison. |A/B| gives the absolute value of third-chromosome shape effects in standard deviations of the wild-type control population for each trait (cf. Table 1).
