The tables below provide a summary index of geomorph functions and their main purpose, to assist users to find available tools. They are organized into: 1) Analytical, 2) Utility, and 3) Plotting functions. At the end, a separate table provides an overview of the example datasets available.

NOTE: Deprecated (or soon to be) functions are not included.

Analytical functions

These are the core analytical functions of geomorph. Many of them produce S3 objects which can then be further explored using summary() and plot().

Function name | Brief description | summary() | plot() :-------- | :--------------------------------------------| :----: | :----: | bilat.symmetry | Symmetry analysis and calculation of symmetric and asymmetric shape components | X | X compare.evol.rates | Calculate and compare rates of shape evolution among groups on a phylogeny | X | X compare.multi.evol.rates | Calculate and compare evolutionary rates for two or more shape traits on a phylogeny | X | X compare.pls | Compare effect sizes of two or more PLS fits | X | estimate.missing | Estimate the position of missing landmarks using regression or the TPS fixed.angle | Standardize the angle of articulated structures | | globalIntegration | Calculate global integration as the slope of the log-variance of partial warps vs. their bending energy | | gm.prcomp | Principal components analysis of Procrustes shape coordinates | X | X gpagen | Generalized Procrustes Analysis | X | X integration.test | Test for morphological integration using PLS | X | X modularity.test | Test for morphological modularity using the Covariance Ratio | X | X morphol.disparity | Estimate and compare across groups morphological disparity | X | mshape | Calculate the mean shape of a landmark configuration | | X phylo.integration | Test for morphological integration across species while accounting for phylogeny using PLS | X | X phylo.modularity | Test for morphological modularity across species using the Covariance Ratio, while accounting for phylogeny | X | X physignal | Calculate phylogenetic signal for shape data | X | X procD.lm | Linear model and Procrustes ANOVA with permutation procedures | X | X procD.pgls | Linear model and Procrustes ANOVA in a phylogenetic framework with permutation procedures | X | X shape.predictor | Estimate shape configurations based on linear predictors | | two.b.pls | Two-block partial least squares analysis | X | X

Plotting functions

Stand-alone geomorph plotting functions. For S3 plot functions of geomorph objects see the section of analytical functions.
