we wanted to fit a manova as descripted in Marieta /et al./ 2003, "convergent habitat segregation of /Aedes aegyptii/ and /Aedes albopictus/ (Diptera: /Culicidae/) in Southern Brazil and Florida", /J. Med. Entomol./, *40* (6), 785-794. They did their analysis with SAS software.
We have the same kind of data with two insect species and city, habitat and season factors. We used the function manova() and it was OK for multivariate analysis. We have two questions (we have searched, with the help tools we know, on the site and on many packages without success ) :

1/ The next step of our analysis was to calculate the Standardized Canonical Coefficients (SCC); we have no idea of how to do. Is there some link with a PCA on Instrumental Variables ? The explaination in the article was not clear for us.

2/ As in a ANOVA, we wanted to realize mean comparisons. Marieta et al. used bivariate pairwise contrasts of a factor within each level of the other factor (for significant interactions) using Dunn-Sidak method and univariate contrasts of pairs of main effects (for significant main effects) using Dunn-Sidak method. We tried to use the glht() function (from multcomp package) without success because of the nature of manova() object. Has someone an helpful advice to give ?

Merci beaucoup, (Thanks a lot)

Bien cordialement, (Sincerely yours)
