Subject: Announcement Volume of Rome Geometric Morphometrics Workshop

Dear Morphometricians

We are glad to announce the publication of the Proceedings of the Rome
Geometric Morphometris Workshop (summary by Marco Corti at, edited by A. Loy, M. Corti, D. C.
Adams, D. E. Slice, and F.J. Rohlf, and published as a special issue of
the Italian Journal of Zoology (publication date: February 2004). The
volume will be available at the price of 25 euro. People interested can
reserve a copy of the volume by sending an e-mail WITHIN NOVEMBER 3 to
Anna Loy (, as we need to now in advance how many extra
copies should be printed. Details on payment will follow the
