Data from: Nonlandmark classification in paleobiology: computational geometry as a tool for species discrimination

Joshua Mike, Colin Sumrall, Vasileios Maroulas & Fernando Schwartz
One important and sometimes contentious challenge in paleobiology is discriminating between species, which is increasingly accomplished by comparing specimen shape. While lengths and proportions are needed to achieve this task, finer geometric information, such as concavity, convexity, and curvature, plays a crucial role in the undertaking. Nonetheless, standard morphometric methodologies such as landmark analysis are not able to capture in a quantitative way these features and other important fine-scale geometric notions. Here we develop and...
