Frontiers in Zoology | Full text | Comparison of geometric morphometric outline methods in the discrimination of age-related differences in feather shape

Geometric morphometric methods of capturing information about curves or outlines of organismal structures may be used in conjunction with canonical variates analysis (CVA) to assign specimens to groups or populations based on their shapes. This methodological paper examines approaches to optimizing the classification of specimens based on their outlines. This study examines the performance of four approaches to the mathematical representation of outlines and two different approaches to curve measurement as applied to a collection of feather outlines. A new approach to the dimension reduction necessary to carry out a CVA on this type of outline data with modest sample sizes is also presented, and its performance is compared to two other approaches to dimension reduction.

BMC Evolutionary Biology | Full text | Molecules, morphometrics and new fossils provide an integrated view of the evolutionary history of Rhinopomatidae (Mammalia: Chiroptera)

The Rhinopomatidae, traditionally considered to be one of the most ancient chiropteran clades, remains one of the least known groups of Rhinolophoidea. No relevant fossil record is available for this family.

Jean-Pierre Dujardin's insight:
In order to correctly assign the origin of individuals from two distinct tortoise lineages, we studied here the accuracy of shape statistics depending on the inclusion of different numbers of shape components.Misleading assignment may occur if an optimal balance between the number of shape variables and the number of sampled individuals is not respected, especially when more variables than specimens are available.
