Comparing shapes, understanding evolution

"The study of shape has intrigued some of the brightest minds of humanity, from Leonardo Da Vinci and Carl Friedrich Gauss to some of the top scientists of the modern era. [...]This is the topic addressed by the work of Boyer et al. (5) in PNAS, with a unique interdisciplinary team of anthropologists, archaeologists, computer scientists, and mathematicians." See commentary @ PNAS.
