Zooarchaeological Analysis with Log-Ratios

Includes functions and reference data to generate and manipulate log-ratios (also known as log size index (LSI) values) from measurements obtained on zooarchaeological material. Log ratios are used to compare the relative (rather than the absolute) dimensions of animals from archaeological contexts (Meadow 1999, ISBN: 9783896463883). zoolog is also able to seamlessly integrate data and references with heterogeneous nomenclature, which is internally managed by a zoolog thesaurus. A preliminary version of the zoolog methods was first used by Trentacoste, Nieto-Espinet, and Valenzuela-Lamas (2018) .
