Étude crâniométrique d’un échantillon de chiens de races variées

Abstract : The Dog is the oldest domesticated species. Craniometry, with standardized measurements on the skull and mandible, is a useful tool for comparing dogs and other Canids or even dog breeds themselves. This study aims to give reference data for breeds that had not been studied yet regarding the canine craniometry technique, to give comparison clues between the breeds that exist today and to offer a minimal sequence of measurements that makes discrimination between different types of dogs possible. The experimental study is described with 80 measurements for each of the 139 osseous heads available, coming from 46 breeds. In a last part, we offer a methodology reducing the measurements from 80 to 17.
