Welcome

MorphoMuseuM, also referred to as M3, is a peer reviewed, online journal that publishes 3D models of vertebrates, including models of type specimens, anatomy atlases, reconstruction of deformed or damaged specimens, and 3D datasets (see https://doi.org/10.1017/scs.2017.14 for details).
M3 comes along with a free software, MorphoDig, which contains a set of tools for editing, positioning, deforming, labelling, measuring and rendering sets of 3D surfaces.

3D models related to the publication: The morphology and evolution of chondrichthyan cranial muscles: a digital dissection of the elephantfish Callorhinchus milii and the catshark Scyliorhinus canicula
Richard Dearden, Rohan Mansuit, Anthony Herrel, Antoine Cuckovic, Dominique Didier, Paul Tafforeau and Alan Pradel
Keywords: chondrichthyan; cranial muscles; digital dissection; elasmobranch; holocephalan

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.133

  Abstract

    This contribution contains 3D models of the cranial skeleton and muscles in an elephantfish (Callorhinchus milii) and a catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula), based on synchrotron tomographic scans. These datasets were analyzed and described in Dearden et al. (2021) “The morphology and evolution of chondrichthyan cranial muscles: a digital dissection of the elephantfish Callorhinchus milii and the catshark Scyliorhinus canicula.” Journal of Anatomy.

3D model related to the publication: three-dimensional and histological observations on male genital organs of greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum.
Joon H. Sohn, Junpei Kimura and Daisuke Koyabu
Keywords: convergence; evolution; homology; reproductive organ; Yinpterochiroptera

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.113

  Abstract

    The present Dataset contains the 3D model of the male genital organs of greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum. This is the first detailed 3D structure of the soft-tissue genital organs of bats. The 3D model was generated using microCT and techniques of virtual reconstruction.
