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.

Simpson (1961) has defined homology to be 'resemblance due to inheritance' from a common ancestry'. One would not, for example, consider the leg of a cat and the leg of a beetle to be homologous, and the same would apply to the wing of a bat and the'wing of a butterfly. One would, however, treat the arm of a man, the wing of a bird, and the front leg of a cat as homologous characters. Homology is often contrasted with analogy, resemblance due to common function. The wings of birds and butterflies are analogous since they are both used for flying, but are not homologous since they do not ,share any common ancestry.
