  5. Morphology, Shape and Phylogeny

    Edited by Norman MacLeod, Peter L. Forey

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    Generally, biologists and mathematicians who study the shape and form of organisms have largely been working in isolation from those who work on evolutionary relationships through the analysis of common characteristics. Increasingly however, dialogue between the two communities is beginning to...
