Computer applications in paleontology: Balance in the late 1980s?

AbstractAlthough computer methods now are used routinely in some parts of paleontology, in others they are seen as unnecessary or even irrelevant. There is no balanced spread of computer applications throughout paleontology as a whole. Applications in the late 1980s tended to be rather conventional, but a few were distinctly innovative. The most significant probably were the developments in theoretical morphology, especially as automatic techniques for gathering morphometric data were being developed to provide real-world data for comparison. Also significant was the application to paleontology of some of the techniques of computer-intensive statistical inference. These may allow statistical tests to be developed for paleontological hypotheses that were previously untestable.
