    • Age dimorphism in the wild boar (Sus scrofa L., 1758) mandible is centred on the condylar ramus 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (Medlife Scientific Press, 2015-04-14)
      We report here a geometric morphometric analysis based on 16 homologous landmarks by which the expression and magnitude of mandibular age dimorphism during late growth in 37 European wild boars (Sus scrofa L., 1758) were ...
    • Directional and fluctuating asymmetries in domestic sheep skulls 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel; Bravi, R. (Medlife Scientific Press, 2014-06-22)
      Morphological symmetry and asymmetry of three different sheep geographical populations (n=39), managed under semi-extensive conditions, were decomposed using geometric morphometric methods, on dorsal aspect of skulls. ...
    • Directional asymmetry in yellow-bellied sliders (Trachemys scripta scripta) (Schoepff 1792) 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel; Ardiaca, Jordi; Martínez Silvestre, Albert (Societas Europaea Herpetologica (SEH), 2020-08-05)
      Bilateral symmetry is not uncommon in animal kingdom, and animals can deviate from expected symmetry and manifest some forms of asymmetries. Fluctuating asymmetry is considered a tool for valuating developmental instability, ...
    • Side differences in the skull of sheep: an assessment by geometric morphometrics 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel; Tolić, A.; Carnicero, R. (SCIENCEDOMAIN International, 2020-01-16)
      Effects of perturbations during development can be due to environmental and/or genetic factors, resulting in increased developmental instability which in turn can be expressed as fluctuating asymmetry (FA), defined as the ...
    • Skulls symmetry of"White Rasquera" goat 

      Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel (David Publishing Company, 2013-11-05)
      Three common categories of bilateral asymmetry have been described: directional asymmetry, antisymmetry, and FA (fluctuating asymmetry). FA is the most subtle of the three types of asymmetry, and differs from the patterns ...
