A new, three-dimensional geometric morphometric approach to assess egg shape

Attard, Marie; Sherratt, Emma; McDonald, Paul; Young, Iain M.; Vidal-Garcia, Marta; Wroe, Stephen


This paper proposes a new methodology to quantify patterns of egg shape variation using geometric morphometrics of three-dimensional landmarks captured on digitally reconstructed eggshells and demonstrates its performance in capturing shape variation at multiple biological levels. This methodology offers unique benefits to complement established linear measurement or two-dimensional (2D) contour profiling techniques by (i) providing a more precise representation of eggshell curvature by...[Show more]
