  • Quantitative evaluation of the shapes of biological organs is often required in various research fields, such as agronomy, medicine, genetics, ecology, and taxonomy. Elliptic Fourier descriptors (EFDs), proposed by Kuhl and Giardina (1982), can delineate any type of shape with a closed two-dimensional contour and have been effectively applied to the evaluation of various biological shapes in animals (Bierbaum and Ferson 1986; Diaz et al. 1989; Ferson et al. 1985; Rohlf and Archie 1984) and… CONTINUE READING
