Has anyone heard of the method perhaps called 'distance regression' and perhaps
developed and/or studied in Forrest Young's lab?
I am working on a paper that uses an extension of the Mantel test statistic
which correlates two distance matrices. The extension published by Smouse, Long
and Sokal in 1987 (and independnetly derived by me in 2000, damn it, 13 years
late again) uses the Mantel test statistic in a regression framework.
Thanks for any input.
