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 highlighted. 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 results.
