Morphological analyses of ammonites are a time-consuming process. The
software CONCH allows to gather the established sets of morphological
characteristics (i.e., diameter, whorl height, whorl interspace,
umbilical width) as well as the traditionally derived parameters and
three different rib density parameters in steps of 10, 30 or 45 radial
degrees. Data can be exported as .csv files, images of the ammonites
with set landmarks can be saved, and projects can be stored for later
continuation. The software thus streamlines ammonite analyses and allows
scientists to converge on a single software to perform all ammonite
morphological analyses for enhanced compatibility in the future.
