GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPLEX STRUCTURES: ONTOGENETIC CHANGES IN SCAPULAR SHAPE OF DASYPODID ARMADILLOS
The ontogenetic development of the scapula of Euphrucfus sexcinctus and Dasypus novemcinctus was studied using geometric morphometrics techniques. The relative importance of uniform , large, and small scale shape changes on ontogenetic development was assessed both by multi-variate regression of shape on size and by relative warps analysis. The scapular development in both species is very similar and is characterized (and dominated) by an enlargement of the teres major process. This processfatcat:zrk7bqw2ufgczft5ngxxmlfzke
