This site

The Mathematica notebooks have been developed by Jonathan Krieger and Norman MacLeod. Software development and the analytical back end of Morpho-tools are currently supported by Norman MacLeod through the Natural History Museum, London. The front end website was created and is supported by Jonathan Krieger.

The Morpho-tools site was created as a portion of Jonathan Krieger's Ph.D. at the University of Colorado. Contact Jonathan at

We owe a debt of gratitude to Gareth Russell, who graciously shared code for the web implementation, used on his Eco-tools site. His site was, clearly, invaluable in creating the morpho-tools site. Robert Guralnick provided the first server hosting online analyses for Morpho-tools. During early development of the eigenshape code, Norman MacLeod provided feedback and encouragement. We tested the FORTRAN and Mathematica code side-by-side in Halifax, and decided upon further refinements in London. P. David Polly has provided thoughtful discussion on interpolation, and provided the first examples of morphometric code in Mathematica.
