Consequences of the choice of landmarks for visualization and biological interpretation of shape changes in 2-D geometric morphometrics: a study case

Abstract

We compare shape changes in mandibles of marsupials, represented by 2-dimensional coordinates, using different subsets of landmarks. We show that use of Type III landmarks, often not recommended in geometric morphometric techniques, might permit a better interpretation of shape changes than use of Type I landmarks alone, or a combination of Types I and II… (More)
