Definition of Term

morphometric character
(English) A character based on measurement, e.g. head length. In fish, measurements are taken on a straight line basis, not around the curve of the body with the exception of such measurements specifically intended to measure roundness, e.g. girth. Any measurement should be defined or referenced to a standard work as some may include soft parts or only be from bony margin to bony margin. (See also: character, head length, morphometric)
