Vertebrates Limb Geometry in the Simplex space

A novel metric comparison of the appendicular skeleton (fore and hind limb) ofdifferent vertebrates using the Compositional Data Analysis (CDA) methodologicalapproach it’s presented.355 specimens belonging in various taxa of Dinosauria (Sauropodomorpha, Theropoda,Ornithischia and Aves) and Mammalia (Prothotheria, Metatheria and Eutheria) wereanalyzed with CDA.A special focus has been put on Sauropodomorpha dinosaurs and the Aitchinsondistance has been used as a measure of disparity in limb elements proportions to infersome aspects of functional morphology
