Laboratory for Geometric Morphometrics

Laboratory of the Department of Agricultural Zoology

Morphometry is used to measure minor differences in shape and size, and also to identify specific species and determine how much environmental factors affect variability within a species, as well as many other measurements and analyses of morphological variability of body elements. The data are obtained by measuring, most often length characteristics (morphometric variables), as well as by measuring the distance between clearly defined specific points (markers) of the morphological unit. Geometric morphometry enables a credible description and interpretation of shape variability, the possibility of independent analysis of size and shape, and the application of multivariate statistical methods.

The laboratory has a Zeeis Stemi 2000-C stereo microscope, a suitable computer with software installed for specific measurements (Morpho J and tps.Dig 232). It also features a Matter and Form MFS1V2 1 ST 3D scanner for better shape visualization.

Head of the laboratory: Assist. Prof. Darija Lemić, PhD
