Table 3 The phylogenetic signal of skull shape based on regression residuals. K, observed phylogenetic signal; P, the significance level of the observed signal. RBF: Phylogenetic signals based on regression residuals of skull morphology and size corrected bite force (Residual bite force); Diet: Phylogenetic signals based on regression residuals of skull morphology and diet. Bold fonts indicates significant differences (P < 0.05)
