[R] MANOVA and Extra Sums-of-Squares Tests

Dear chris33,

You can use the anova() function to compare the two multivariate linear models. Alternatively, the Anova() function in the car package will compute "type II" or "type III" MANOVA tests, which aren't quite what you're asking about.

I hope this helps,
