Dear list members,
Transmitting Science is running a new course that could be of interest for list
members, althougth it is not specific on Geometric Morphometrics:
“Mapping Trait Evolution”, June 5th-9th, 2017; instructor: Dr. Jeroen Smaers
(Stony Brook University, USA).
Monday. (R packages: ape, Geiger).
- Phylogenetic data
- What is the basic structure of phylogenetic data?
- How to visualize and manipulate phylogenetic data?
- What are models of evolution?
- What are the assumptions of the different models of evolution
- How are models of evolution utilized?
Tuesday. (R packages: ape, nlme, caper, evomap).
- Assumptions, properties, and applications of the phylogenetic regression.
- Phylogenetic ancova.
- Testing for grade shifts using the phylogenetic regression.
Wednesday. (R packages: phytools, motmot, geiger, ape, evomap, BayesTraits).
- Ancestral estimation
- Using models of evolution to estimate values of ancestral nodes.
- Analysis of rates of evolution.
- Estimation of rates of evolution.
- Testing hypothesis about rates of evolution.
Thursday. (R packages: bayou, phylolm, surface, OUwie, mvMORPH).
- Inferring the structure of a macroevolutionary landscape.
- Using Ornstein-Uhlenbeck models to map macroevolutionary patterns.
- Testing the structure of a macroevolutionary landscape.
- Applications and assumptions of OU models.
- Using OU models to test macroevolutionary hypotheses.
Friday. (R packages: geomorph).
- Modularity and integration.
- What is ‘phylogenetic’ modularity and integration?
- Applications and assumptions.
