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 of fossils of Dinomyidae rodents (Rodentia: Caviomorpha) from the Miocene and Quaternary of Brazil
Leonardo Kerber, David Dias da Silva and Francisco R. Negri
Keywords: Micro CT-SCan; Morphology; Potamarchinae; Serra da Capivara; Solimões Formation

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.95

  Abstract

    This contribution contains 3D models of extinct rodents Dinomyidae from Miocene and Quaternary of Brazil. The Miocene specimens that were digitalized include the holotypes of Potamarchus adamiae, Pseudopotamarchus villanuevai, and Ferigolomys pacarana collected in the Solimões Formation (Upper Miocene), northern Brazil. The Quaternary specimens are the holotype and paratype of Niedemys piauiensis, found in Upper Pleistocene deposits from northeast Brazil.

Olivier Maridet, Gaëtan Rauber, Martine Rochat, Renaud Roch, Jérémy Tissier, Jérémy Anquetin and Damien Becker
Keywords: Conservation; Early Oligocene; Rhinocerotidae; Switzerland

doi: 10.18563/journal.m3.82

  Abstract

    This contribution provides for the first time the 3D model of the type specimen of Molassitherium delemontense (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) described in the following publication: Becker et al. (2013), Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, Vol. 11, Issue 8, 947–972, https://doi.org/10.1080/14772019.2012.699007. Conservation issues of the specimen and solutions using 3D model and 3D prints are detailed.
