Digital methods are revolutionizing the way functional morphologists conduct research. In this talk, Adam Hartstone-Rose and Edwin Dickinson will discuss how these approaches are improving the visualization of the anatomy and functional morphology of both living and extinct species and how these revealing approaches improve the understanding of evolutionary biology.
They will present analyses based on new approaches to 3-D data acquisition (including contrast-enhanced micro-CT), digital methods of reconstructing these data and their incorporation into functional models of musculoskeletal performance, and the use of paleontological analysis for the reconstruction of ancient species and environments.
