The table lists the QTL from previous studies that lie within the confidence intervals for all QTL for centroid size and shape identified by our analyses (Tables 2 and 3). For the QTL from Leamy et al. (1997, Appendix), the table indicates the number of QTL contained in the respective confidence interval, all the landmarks that define the distances affected by those QTL (cf. Figure 1), and the number of distances affected. For the QTL from Cheverud et al. (1997), the table names the QTL and lists the subregions of the mandible they affect (subregions are capitalized for the QTL classified as in the original study, but are in lowercase for QTL affecting only single distances, which were not named and classified by Cheverud et al.). We included a QTL from a previous study if its location, or at least some of its range, was within the confidence interval of a QTL estimated in the present study, but not if it was located exactly at the boundary of the confidence interval.
