Figure 4

Principal components analysis of fatty acids in Illinois river otters. The data from 60 unique fatty acids projected onto the first two principal components (jointly accounting for 27.8% of the total variance in otter fatty acid profiles). Each data point represents a tissue sample from a single animal. Footpad and tail deposits have largely distinct fatty acid profiles, as there is very little overlap between the two clusters.
