MorphoJ: an integrated software package for geometric morphometrics
Increasingly, data on shape are analysed in combination with molecular genetic or ecological information, so that tools for geometric morphometric analysis are required. Morphometric studies mostExpand

GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS OF DEVELOPMENTAL INSTABILITY: ANALYZING PATTERNS OF FLUCTUATING ASYMMETRY WITH PROCRUSTES METHODS
Although fluctuating asymmetry has become popular as a measure of developmental instability, few studies have examined its developmental basis. We propose an approach to investigate the role ofExpand

Morphometric integration and modularity in configurations of landmarks: tools for evaluating a priori hypotheses
SUMMARY Identifying the modular components of a configuration of landmarks is an important task of morphometric analyses in evolutionary developmental biology. Modules are integrated internally byExpand

Morphological Integration and Developmental Modularity
Biological systems, from molecular complexes to whole organisms and ecological interactions, tend to have a modular organization. Modules are sets of traits that are internally integrated byExpand

  • 1 February 1998
The connection between development and evolution has become the focus of an increasing amount of research in recent years, and heterochrony has long been a key concept in this relation. HeterochronyExpand

SHAPE ANALYSIS OF SYMMETRIC STRUCTURES: QUANTIFYING VARIATION AMONG INDIVIDUALS AND ASYMMETRY
Abstract.— Morphometric studies often consider parts with internal left‐right symmetry, for instance, the vertebrate skull. This type of symmetry is called object symmetry and is distinguished fromExpand

Evolution and development of shape: integrating quantitative approaches
Morphological traits have long been a focus of evolutionary developmental biology ('evo-devo'), but new methods for quantifying shape variation are opening unprecedented possibilities forExpand

Testing and quantifying phylogenetic signals and homoplasy in morphometric data.
The relationship between morphometrics and phylogenetic analysis has long been controversial. Here we propose an approach that is based on mapping morphometric traits onto phylogenies derived fromExpand

Developmental integration in a complex morphological structure: how distinct are the modules in the mouse mandible?
Summary The mouse mandible has long served as a model system for studying the development and evolution of complex morphological structures. We used the methods of geometric morphometrics to reassessExpand
