Nuevo libro de morfometria

Ashraf M.T. Elewa, Editor. 2010. Morphometrics for Nonmorphometricians. Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences 124. Springer. DOI: 10.1007/978-3-540-95853-6

The aim of this new edited volume is 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 this topic. Morphometrics is the quantitative study of
organismic form. It attempts to quantify, precisely and as completely as practical,
the information on size and shape that often is readily apparent to the investigator
yet difficult to adequately characterize in numerical terms. Morphometric studies
thus provide an initial step in the understanding of patterns of variation among individuals
and groups of organisms, and typically form an important groundwork for
analyses of structure, function, and evolution. As such, morphometrics has become
central to the biological sciences.

  1. El libro se ve interesante, pero mas de 130 dolares es un abuso.
