Fig. 1.

Sexual size dimorphism and variation of morphology of Phasianus colchicus compared at differing altitudes.
Note: Black circles represent the lower altitude population (<1500m); while black triangles represent the higher altitude population (>1500m); Additionally, * represents statistical significance at a 0.05 significance level; while statistical significane at the level of 0.01 is represnted by **.
