Geometric Morphometric Analyses and Cranial Shape Evolution in Monitor Lizards
Understanding morphological change is a central theme in evolutionary, developmental, and comparative biology. Lizard heads are well suited to analyses of morphological evolution because of the complexity and diversity in the feeding system that integrates the cranium, jaw, hyolingual and cervical systems. Aside from feeding, the lizard skull is functionally associated with ecomorphology and sexual selection, and is additionally responsible for housing the...[Show more]
