Abstract: 
Few have sought to compare the performance of alternative types
of morphological data for biological species identification. This investigation
contrasts results of form characterization via form factors, superposed
landmark coordinates, landmark-registered semilandmark outlines, 3D
semilandmark networks, and raw digital images for a test set of seven Recent
planktonic foraminifer species. While all data types performed better than the
qualitative assessment of morphological variation by human taxonomists,
landmark-registered semilandmark outlines and raw digital images delivered
the best performance in the context of approaches that could reasonably
serve as the basis for fully automated species identification systems.
