Table 1 Statistical results of Bland-Altman plots for each of 7 ratios measured, comparing the means and differences of morphometrics obtained from survey images to ‘gold standard’ measurements obtained in situ from darted elephants during collaring events. The lower and upper limit values indicate the limits of agreement (LOA). The percent error is calculated by dividing the limits of agreement by the mean value of the measurements. n = 12–15
