Fourier analysis applied to Cricetodon and Hispanomys (Rodentia, Mammalia): its use as a taxonomical criterion

Patricia María Carro-Rodríguez, Paloma López-Guerrero & Mª Ángeles Álvarez-Sierra
Cricetodon and Hispanomys are two extinct rodent genera belonging to the same tribe. Cricetodon presents generally a more primitive morphology than Hispanomys. However, they share some traits and some species present a combination of primitive and derived characters (called mosaic morphological pattern) that difficult assessing the evolutionary stage of the species or their attribution into a genus. Fourier Shape Analysis, a geometric morphometrics method, is used to quantify the outline form of the upper first...
