Geometric morphometrics using R (GMMR02) https://www.prstatistics.com/course/geometric-morphometrics-using-r-gmmr02/
Please feel free to share! This course will be delivered by Dean Adams, Mike Collyer and Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou in Glasgow City Centre for the 30th September - 4th October 2019 You will recognise these names from answering many of the questions on morphmet and as the developers of Geomorph - you could not ask for a better combinations of instructors! Course overview: 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 assumed, and is in fact 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.
