Morphometrics and numerical taxonomy

In addition to using numerical taxonomic methods in studies of Crataegus systematics, I have been interested in exploring their applicability to problems in other groups, especially as related to my interests in development and shape variation.
Leaf shape Termite mandibles Floral development
Fungi Vaccinium Tamarack
Dendrogram comparisons


Some of this work has employed software that is available from the following site, as are a glossary of morphometrics terminology and a list of persons working on morphometric problems:
