  • Abstract:  Univariate and multivariate statistical procedures were used to select 12 statistically problem-free and redundancy-reduced cranial and mandible measurements from a larger suite of 52 measurements made on Neoromicia nana. Specimens from three additional vesper species (Neoromicia capensis, Neoromicia zuluensis and Pipistrellus hesperidus) were used in an R-mode PCA to identify the measurements that best distinguish the different species. This selection process was followed to select meaningful measurements used in a traditional morphometric analysis to assess inter-generic as well as intra- and inter-specific variation in southern African vesper bats from the genera Eptesicus, Hypsugo, Neoromicia, and Pipistrellus.
