Collectively, my results highlight the utility of the P matrix as a tool for studying the integration of complex traits. The extreme stability of P in T. commodus suggests that it is likely to act as a constraint on the evolution of call structure in this species. This insight, together with the link between call structure and wing morphology, illustrates the value of treating evolution as a multivariate process.
