Directional asymmetry of fox bone metrics. Cumulative distribution graphs of scaled metrics from the left (o) and right side (+). Values are expressed as a fraction of the mean, e.g., xr/mean(xr,xl). Length metrics (left column) are shown for the femur, humerus, ulna, ilium, and mandible. Width metrics (right column) are shown for the cortical thickness of the femur (Fcortt), humerus (Hcortt), as well as the ulna (Ucortt) and for the ilium width (Ilwd) and vertical height of the mandible (Manht). See Supporting Information Figure 1 for radiographs showing the endpoints used for each measurement.
