Re: [MORPHMET] Terminology: Morphometry or Morphometrics?

2016-09-08 Thread Norman MacLeod
There’s no clear difference between these terms in the sense of the manner in which they are used at present. Morphometry is sometimes represented as referring to the metrics (= measurements) of form or shape whereas morphometrics is sometimes used to refer to the set of numerical and statical

Dear Emma They are synonyms, with the same meaning. Incidentally, that is the same as for "biometry" and "biometrics". I think "morphometry" may be the older of the two (the Oxford English Dictiionary has a first occurrence in 1857, although it is not clear whether the meaning is the same,

[MORPHMET] Size correction keeping allometry with linear morphometrics

2016-09-08 Thread Damien Esquerre
Dear Morphmet community, I am doing a study on allometry where besides landmark data I have linear measurements. Basically, I need to know what would be the currently most proper way of removing size effects without removing allometric effects in linear data. Something like the equivalent of what

[MORPHMET] Horizontally inverted aligned landmark clouds

2016-09-08 Thread Christopher Marshall
Dear Group, I'm digitizing landmarks for geometric morphometics using TPSDig and plotting the data from a .TPS file in Geomorph in R. For a newly digitized dataset the plot of the aligned landmarks of all specimens is horizontally inverted This is not the case for an older dataset also

Dear Emma, I don't know if there is too much difference except for correct usage. Phylogeny is a noun taken to mean the development history of phyla or phylogenesis. Phylogenetics uses the suffix -ic on the end which makes the noun phylogeny into an adjective. I would tend to use phylogeny as

Hello Viviana Working with DAVID I noticed that the textures of the OBJ files. are saved in PNG format, not in JPG; and all the views are in the same file. There is any way to create this kind of PNG. file with your pictures?. May be this correction could work fine in meshlab. I hope this

Dear Chris, Norm, Alannah, Thank you for your comments and discussion on this term! And for engaging in a fun and different topic for this forum. It is indeed the etymology and usage I find most fascinating. I have noticed through my years of training in morphometrics (as I would call it) that

Back in the days when phenetic clustering was new, at one point someone (Sokal, Rohlf, someone like that) suggested that their field be called "taxometrics". Someone else pointed out that the more proper Greek name would be "taximetrics". Someone else then killed off this suggestion by pointing
