PARTIAL MANTEL TESTS: REPLY TO CASTELLANO AND BALLETTO FRANCOIS ROUSSET Â¸ CC065, Institut des Sciences de lâEvolution, Universite des Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc, Pl. E. Bataillon, Â´ 34095 Montpellier Cedex, France Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Received June 26, 2002. Accepted June 26, 2002. In our note (Raufaste and Rousset 2001), we gave an example where the permutation procedure of the partial Mantel test is invalid. From this, we concluded that partial Mantel tests are generally not valid. Castellano and Balletto (2002) report that they ï¬nd that the partial Mantel test has correct type-1 error probabilities in ââa more general model of causal relationshipââ than the one we considered. Why the difference? For the purpose of providing an example, we deliberately chose simplifying assumptions (populations set around a circle and migration between adjacent populations only; Raufaste and Rousset 2001). Castellano and Balletto (2002) object to these assumptions, but provide no evidence that these particular assumptions are responsible for our results. Of course, a practically reliable testing procedure should not depend on the exact position of samples. Further, localized dispersal between nonadjacent populations could have been incorporated in our analyses without altering our conclusions. Castellano and Ballettoâs (2002) results, however, are
