Abstract
A brief discussion of some of the problems inherent in the quantitative description of complex morphological forms is presented. These include: 1) an accurate measurement of shape, 2) the removal of the confounding effect of size and 3) the application of the procedures of positional orientation and size standardization so that morphological forms can be meaningfully compared. The suitability of Fourier analysis to characterize complex forms of the type encountered in biology is described.
