Paper Abstract

Biosterometric techniques have demonstrated advantages over traditional craniometric methods in describing and analyzing irregular biological forms and form-changes. This paper demonstrates how data obtained with a simple stereoplotting craniostat can be used to precisely describe growth-related changes observed in a cross-sectional collection of olive baboon (Papio cynocephalus anubis) skulls. Data obtained from this extremely prognathic primate species are analyzed using principles of stereographic projections. Demonstrations are made showing how readily understandable representations of otherwise complex multidimensional shapes and shape changes associated with the skull can be made.
