Dear Colleagues,


Registration is open for the course "GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS WITH PLANTS - 2nd 
edition", May 8th-13th, 2017.


Instructors: Dr. Klingenberg (University of Manchester, UK) and José María 
Gómez (Estación Experimental de Zonas Áridas de Almería, Spain).


PLACE: Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).


Organized by: Transmitting Science, the Institut Català de Paleontologia M. C. 
and the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació Paleontologic.


This course offers a self-contained introduction to geometric morphometrics 
with a special focus on applications in plant evolution and development. 
Plant-specific aspects of data acquisition and evaluation are discussed, and 
the particular possibilities of geometric morphometrics in plants will be 

Lectures about general morphological and developmental characteristics of 
plants are combined with an introduction to the concepts and techniques of 
shape analysis. 

Finally, advanced methods such as regression analyses, modularity tests and 
comparative phylogenetic analyses are presented. This theoretical basis is 
complemented by hands-on demonstrations of data collection and analyses. 

The main focus of the course will be on landmark morphometrics, but a brief 
introduction and discussion of outline methods and semilandmarks is also 
provided. If there are participants who already have collected their own data, 
they are encouraged to bring these data for conducting analyses and discussing

All the best
