Morphometrics is the statistical study of biological shape and shape change. Its richest data are landmarks, points, such as the bridge of the nose, that have biological names as well as geometric locations. This book is the first systematic survey of morphometric methods for landmark data.

Editorial Reviews

"Bookstein, through his strong personality and energy, has made the field of morphometrics very visible and has particulary made statisticians aware of the potential of the field for both statistical as well as scientific research...I would like to praise the author for making statisticians aware of the important field of morphometrics and for 'making us think'." Subhash Lele, Journal of the American Statistical Association
