Morphometric space

Dataset of Neotropical Bats (2010). Each dot in this space is a particular skull measured by geometric morphometric techniques. There are at least three groups with more or less recognizable boundaries. However, it is known that in this space there are at least 8 distinct species.

8th national symposium : « morphométrie et évolution des formes ». This meeting aims to promote exchanges between users of morphometrics in various fields of evolution including evolutionary biology, development, bio-archaeology, palaeontology, and ecology. Beyond methodological aspects, it concerns all scientists interested in the quantification and the study of shape of biological objects.
