Ecomorphological analysis of craniofacial variation in colobine monkeys.


Date:2009/03/01 - 2009/03/14

Three dimensional coordinates of major landmarks of the skulls of colobine monkeys were acquired by a three dimensional digitizer at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. Whether morphological variation among colobine monkeys is a function for dietary adaptation is currently analyzed statistically with the collected data.
