About this book

Morphometrics is concerned with the study of variations and change in the form (size and shape) of organisms or objects adding a quantitative element to descriptions and thereby facilitating the comparison of different objects and organisms. This volume provides an introduction to morphometrics in a clear and simple way without recourse to complex mathematics and statistics. This introduction is followed by a series of case studies describing the variety of applications of morphometrics from paleontology and evolutionary ecology to archaeological artifacts analysis. This is followed by a presentation of future applications of morphometrics and state of the art software for analyzing and comparing shape.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This collection explains the volume’s aim as being to present the various aspects of morphometrics in a way that is accessible to readers who might not be acquainted with the voluminous literature on the topic … . this volume should be acquired by those whose purpose demands a comprehensive collection of all published morphometric studies. (e.g. specialist libraries).” (Norman MacLeod, Geology Magazine, February, 2011)
