Geometric Morphometrics Using R (GMMR01)


https://www.prstatistics.com/course/geometric-morphometrics-using-r-gmmr01/

 

This course is being delivered by Prof. Dean Adams, Prof. Michael Collyer 
and Dr. Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou

 

This course will run from 19th – 23rd February 2018 at Margam Discovery 
Centre, Wales, UK.

 

The field of geometric morphometrics (GM) is concerned with the 
quantification and analysis of patterns of shape variation, and its 
covariation with other variables. Over the past several decades these 
approaches have become a mainstay in the field of ecology, evolutionary 
biology, and anthropology, and a panoply of analytical tools for addressing 
specific biological hypotheses concerning shape have been developed. The 
goal of this is to provide participants with a working knowledge of the 
theory of geometric morphometrics, as well as practical training in the 
application of these methods.

 

The course is organized in both theoretical and practical sessions. The 
theoretical sessions will provide a comprehensive introduction to the 
methods of landmark-based geometric morphometrics, which aims at providing 
the participants with a solid theoretical background for understanding the 
procedures used in shape data analysis. Practical sessions will include 
worked examples, giving the participants the opportunity to gain hands-on 
experience in the treatment of shape data using the R package geomorph. 
These sessions focus on the generation of shape variables from primary 
landmark data, the statistical treatment of shape variation with respect to 
biological hypotheses, and the visualization of patterns of shape variation 
and of the shapes themselves for interpretation of statistical findings, 
using the R language for statistical programming. While practice datasets 
will be available, it is strongly recommended that participants come with 
their own datasets.

 

Note: Because this is a geometric morphometrics workshop in R, it is 
required that participants have some working knowledge in R. The practical 
sessions of the course will focus on GM-based analyses, and not basic R 
user-interfacing. It is therefore strongly recommended that participants 
refresh their R skills prior to attending the workshop.
