MORPHMET is the morphometrics mailing list and discussion group originally started by Les Marcus at Queens College and the American Museum of Natural History. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, references, and queries about morphometrics - the study of shape and form (size+shape) in organisms (or anything else). Appropriate contributions include: queries and comments about morphometric methods and philosophy, new references or inquiries about the literature, announcements for relevant meetings, papers, and job openings, etc. Your first post to the list will be moderated (just to identify legitimate subscribers), and we take a very liberal view as to what is appropriate. Upon approval of the first post, moderation will be turned off.

To use the web interface below, you must be signed in to a Google account associated with the address with which you subscribed to the list. There is a "Sign In" link at the bottom of this page.
