Dear colleagues,


Transmitting Science course "Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny" has opened 


Dates: September 9th-13th, 2019, Barcelona.


Instructor: Dr. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester, United Kingdom)


Place:  Capellades, Barcelona (Spain).


Registration and more info:




1. Phylogeny, trees and phylogenetic reasoning.

2. Brief review of geometric morphometrics (Procrustes fit, PCA, etc.).

3. Mapping traits onto phylogenies: squared-change parsimony.

4. Practice: making/editing Nexus files, mapping morphometric data onto the 
tree (Mesquite, MorphoJ).

5. Phylogenetic signal, morphometric traits and estimating phylogeny.

6. Comparative methods: independent contrasts.

7. Application in morphometrics: evolutionary allometry and size correction.

8. Practice: comparative methods (MorphoJ).

9. Application of comparative methods: morphological integration.

10. Multi-level analyses of integration: inferring evolutionary mechanisms.

11. Application of comparative methods: partial least squares (ecomorphology, 

12. Practice: comparative methods (cont.).

13. Morphometrics, phylogenies and qualitative characters.

14. Disparity and diversification.

15. Presentations of group work.
