This is a technical description in html format of simple fortran programs for Macintosh for the morphometric analysis of tests planktonic foraminifera under reflected light, with special focus on the Neogene group of Globorotalia menardii.
The second part of this report gives information and performance tests about the development of AMOR (Automated Measurement system for the mORphometry of microfossils). AMOR is Windows based and helps to orientate and collect digital images of menardiform globorotalids. The above fortran programs may be useful to extract and analyze some morphometric parameters from images collected with AMOR.
