Arothron

Arothron (Profico et al 2021)

Arothron is a new R package for geometric morphometrics and virtual anthropology. It is “an R software suite meant to process and analyze digital models of skeletal elements [that] includes tools to digitally extract virtual cavities such as cranial endocasts, to statistically align disarticulated or broken bony elements, and to visualize local variations between surface meshes and landmark configurations”. Among the examples provided in this presentation paper, there is a morphological comparison between the right hemisphere in Neanderthals and modern humans.

This week, we have published […] […]
