Applications of three-dimensional box modeling to paleontological functional analysis

Abstract:

Functional analysis through computer modeling can inform on how extinct organisms moved and fed, allowing us to test long-standing paleobiological hypotheses. Many such studies are based on digital models derived from computed tomography or surface scanning, but these methods are not appropriate for all fossils. Here, we show that box modeling — 3-D modeling of complex shapes based on simple objects — can be used to reconstruct the morphology of various fossil specimens. Moreover, the results...
