    Abstract: A Computer Guide Comparative Osteology: Traits of Continuous Variation of Human Skull

    Mentor: Dr. Sarah Keller, Anthropology

    This computer program is designed to aid students in studying the traits of continuous variations of the human skull. The program is formatted like a laboratory worksheet with menus providing options for viewing each trait and the applicable degrees of variation. Upon selecting a trait for viewing, a drop down menu appears allowing the student to select the degree of variation. An enhanced photograph then appears for the student to use as comparison or a substitute if that particular skeletal feature is absent in the collection they are working with. The program is intended to aid students who do not have access to large skeletal collection the are working with. The program is intended to aid students who do not have access to large skeletal collection or who may need additional assistance in understanding the skeletal material that they are studying.
