Shape does matter: A geometric morphometric approach to shape variation in Indo-Pacific fish vertebrae for habitat identification

Samper Carro, Sofia Cristina; Louys, Julien; O'Connor, Sue


Traditional fish vertebrae identification relies on the availability of comprehensive reference collections that include every element from the neural spine for each taxon. In regions with great taxonomic diversity, such as the Indo-Pacific, the identification of fish vertebrae to species is difficult. This results in taxonomic lists with many skeletal elements identified only to family. However family level identifications often tell us little about the environmental preferences of the fish...[Show more]
