Dear colleagues,


Registration is open for the course “STUDYNG EVOLUTION WITH GEOMETRIC 
MORPHOMETRICS – 3rd edition”


Instructor: Dr. Chris Klingenberg (Manchester University, UK).


Place: Heraklion, Crete (Greece).


Dates: September 10th – 14th



Monday, September 10th, 2018. Review of some fundamental methods, introduction 
to MorphoJ.

§  Size and shape, Procrustes fit, visualization of shape changes.

§  Principal component analysis.

§  Distinguishing groups: Canonical variates and discriminant analysis.

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018. A closer look at some properties of morphometric 

§  Measurement error and outliers.

§  Symmetry and asymmetry.

§  Regression: Allometry and size correction.

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018. Morphological integration and modularity.

§  Partial least squares.

§  Modularity.

§  Inferring developmental integration from fluctuating asymmetry.

Thursday, September 13th, 2018. Phylogeny and comparative methods.

§  Mapping shape data onto phylogenies.

§  Comparative methods.

§  Advanced topics: Analyses across levels, evolutionary size correction.

Friday, September 14th, 2018. Special topics and combined analyses.

§  Complex symmetries.

§  Comparing covariance matrices (matrix correlation, ordination methods, etc.).

§  Putting things together: Multi-level analyses.

Morning sessions will be used for lectures and demonstrations of analyses 
(participants will conduct their own analyses with software and data provided 
to them).

Afternoon sessions will be devoted to work in small groups. The first four 
afternoons will be used for analysis of the participants’ data as small group 
projects. During the last afternoon, participants will give informal 
presentations of the group work. There would be an evaluation at the end of the 
course, based on the group work presentations.
