La talla de cada configuracion fue estimada usando la "Talla del Centroide" (TC) (Bookstein 1991); una vez que todos los individuos fueron digitalizados los efectos de traslacion, escala y rotacion fueron eliminados del conjunto de configuraciones, al utilizar un analisis ortogonal de minimos cuadrados generalizados de Procrustes (AGP) (Rohlf & Slice 1990), se implementa en el programa tpsSmall (Rolhf 2003); en este procedimiento todas las configuraciones fueron escaladas a TC=1.
