Unexpectedly rapid evolution of mandibular shape in hominins

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5943523
PMID: 29743608

[…] lane. Fortunately, being the hemimandible a flat bone, these features were easily recognizable, even on samples taken from published resources. The pictures we took directly derive from ref.. We used tpsDig2 software to digitize 9 landmarks as to adequately describe the lower jaw profile (fig. 4). Gmm also returns the Centroid Size (the square root of the sum of squared distances between each land […]


Modularity promotes morphological divergence in ray finned fishes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5940925
PMID: 29740131
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25715-y

[…] Landmarks and semi-landmarks were digitized with TPSDig2 and superimposed using the package geomorph for R. The phylomorphospace analysis, covariance ratio and rate ratio were also computed using the package geomorph. The observed correlation matric […]


Morphometric assessment of pterosaur jaw disparity

R Soc Open Sci
PMCID: 5936930
PMID: 29765665
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.172130

[…] ce of the mandible), five points between landmarks 2 and 3, and 20 points between landmarks 3 and 1 (ventral surface of the mandible). The fixed and SLMs were applied digitally to all specimens using tpsDig []. To remove the noise effects of size, position and rotation, all 43 landmarks were aligned using a generalized Procrustes analysis (GPA) []. During the GPA, the SLMs were allowed to iterativ […]


Shape variation and modularity of skull and teeth in domesticated horses and wild equids

Front Zool
PMCID: 5907714

DOI: 10.1186/s12983-018-0258-9

[…] e , Fig. , Additional file , , and ) following Seetah et al. [] for the upper teeth that was adapted for the lower teeth. The landmark coordinates were collected on high resolution photographs using TPSDig2 []. The photographs were all taken in a standardized manner using a Canon Eos 600d with a Canon EF 24-105 mm f/4 L S USM lens from lateral and dorsal view with a scale bar for size reference. […]


Taxonomic revision of the long nosed armadillos, Genus Dasypus Linnaeus, 1758 (Mammalia, Cingulata)

PLoS One
PMCID: 5889077
PMID: 29624590
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195084

[…] an 18–55mm lens set at 18 mm focal length. The camera was positioned perpendicular to the table on which each skull rested at a distance of 195 mm from the focal plane. Landmarks were recorded using tpsDig version 2.17 []. Coordinates of each landmark were aligned, and the effects of location, orientation and scale were removed through a Generalized Procrustes Analysis [] using the package geomor […]


Adaptive phenotypic plasticity in a clonal invader

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5938463
PMID: 29760888
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.4009

[…] (Bookstein, ; Zelditch et al., ). After transforming shell images into Thin‐Plate Spline (tps) format, we placed 20 Cartesian landmarks (Figure ) with the programs tpsUtil version 1.64 (Rohlf, ) and tpsDig version 2.22 (Rohlf, ), respectively. A Procrustes superimposition of the landmarks, which filters out the location, scale, and rotational information of the landmarks (Rohlf & Slice, ), and ce […]
