VARSEDIG: An Algorithm for Morphometric Characters Selection and Statistical Validation in Morphological Taxonomy

An algorithm (Guisande et al., 2016 <doi:10.11646/zootaxa.4162.3.10>) which identifies the morphometric features that significantly discriminate two taxa and validates the morphological distinctness between them via a Monte-Carlo test, polar coordinates and overlap of the area under the density curve.
