Note that the sum of squares of the coefficients in each component is unity and that the sum of the latent roots is equal to the sum of the diagonal elements in S. The ftrst principal component accounts for nearly all of the variance in the three characters. 31 (height) The size of the turtle shells could be characterized by this single variable with little loss of information since it alone accounts for some 98% of the variation of the three measurements length, width and height.

Latent vectors for first four components of winged aphid variables (Jeffers, 1967) Latent vectors for component Variable Length Width Fore-wing Hind-wing Spiracles Antenna! segment Antenna! segment Antennal segment Antenna! segment Antenna! 4. Note that the latent vectors have been rescaled by Jeffers after the analysis, so that 'the maximum coefficient (weighting) in each column is + 1. This scaling is arbitrary and is only useful if it helps the reader to assess the relative importance of each of the original measurements in the composition of the calculated orthogonal components.

The decision to include or exclude the number of matched Os, that is d, is a difficult and, at times, a contentious one. In some situations it would be improper to neglect conjoint absences when estimating similarity, in others it would seem rid,iculous to regard two taxa as similar largely on the basis of their both lacking some feature. ) The following example from Sokal & Sneath (1963) illustrates some of the difficulties over the appropriate way to deal with negative matches when estimating similarity.
