Abstract:

Morphometry is undergoing major changes on at least two fronts. One is the development of new methods by statisticians working on biological problems, and the other in the kinds of biological questions to which they are applied, especially a new look at development, evolution and variation in the form of organims. Fonn includes both size and shape. Up to now, size has been dealt with in a satisfactory quantitative manner, but shape has been reduced to a comparison of sizes of parts of organisms. Now, it is possible to dissect shape into linear and non-linear components for homologous landmarks. A number of workshops in the last few years and additional ones being organized are disseminating the results of this effort, and attest to the vigor and interest in morphometries. We believe it is not too early to describe the emerging changes as radical departures from the past. A new paradigm is now being formulated. We also believe that the store of available problems and methods qualifies morphometries as a discipline in its own right.
