  1. The upper triangle shows the values obtained for all birds and the lower triangle excluding flightless birds. Each cell represent the covariance values and posterior probability are the bracketed values, posterior probability (a - < = 0.025 or > =0.975; b - < =0.05 or > =0.95) are highlighted in bold for the statistically significant correlations
