Several shape variables were significantly correlated with fish length (area, perimeter, roundness, rectangularity, circularity, Fourier harmonics 1-9, 11-14, 17, 19, and 20); the method described above was applied to remove the correlation of those variables with respect to fish length.

Whole sagittal otolith morphometric variables of length, width, area, perimeter, circularity, and rectangularity were extracted by image processing and, in combination with age-specific discriminant analyses, were used to differentiate two stocks of silver hake: a northern stock from the Gulf of Maine to northern Georges Bank and a southern stock from southern Georges Bank to the Middle Atlantic.
Demonstrating her evolution as a painter in satisfyingly specific and revealing examinations of the canvases themselves, including many of the 120 handsomely reproduced in this book, Kertess explores some fascinating areas, including Mitchell's influences (she acknowledged Matisse and van Gogh but denied Monet); her use of the center of the canvas; her circularity versus her rectangularity in canvases from different periods (with a beautifully worked-out aside on her use of the sunflower as metaphor for painting); and of particular interest, given Mitchell's opulent use of white, how that color in her paintings functioned in different ways at different times, ranging from interactive, to atmospheric, to nurturing, to perilous, deathly, smothering, and finally to haunting.
