Just measure length, circumference, width, weight, density??

That's a good start. But did you pay any attention to what I wrote?

Higher order measures would need to follow from the basic/simple
ones. I've read of labs (was it in France) that was attempting
things along the lines of D'arcy Thompson and making computer
models. I don't know what results they've achieved. Is there
any more?
