Beschreibung

Morphometrics has undergone a revolutionary transformation in the past two decades as new methods have been developed to address shortcomings in the traditional multivirate analysis of linear distances, angles, and indices. While there is much active research in the field, the new approaches to shape analysis are already making significant and ever-increasing contributions to biological research, including physical anthropology. Modern Morphometrics in Physical Anthropology highlights the basic machinery of the most important methods, while introducing novel extensions to these methods and illustrating how they provide enhanced results compared to more traditional approaches. Modern Morphometrics in Physical Anthropology provides a comprehensive sampling of the applications of modern, sophisticated methods of shape analysis in anthropology, and serves as a starting point for the exploration of these practices by students and researchers who might otherwise lack the local expertise or training to get started. This text is an importantresource for the general morphometric community that includes ecologists, evolutionary biologists, systematists, and medical researchers.

Pressestimmen

From the reviews:
"The chapters in Modern Morphometrics in Physical Anthropology are from a symposium at the 2002 meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. ... It is a very valuable exposition of the strengths and bioanthropological applications of geometric morphometrics (GM). ... The book is highly recommended ... ." (Robert S. Corruccini, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 27 (2), April, 2006)
