We use shape to help us identify objects in the natural world.
The characteristic shape of a cardinal, upright and crowned by a crest; or the nail imprints of a coyote track that helps set it apart from that of a bobcat; or the bipinnate leaves of a mesquite versus the simple leaves of an Emory oak. Come explore the world of shape, the world of nature, with us.
