No bilateral variation accompanies the skull size change in domestic pig
MetadataShow full item record
Morphological symmetry and asymmetry in a sample of 41 domestic pig skulls was decomposed into a component of symmetric and asymmetric variation using geometric morphometric methods. The left<br>right symmetric variation was similar to the asymmetric variation, and both mainly centred on the caudal part of skull.
