Last call for the workshop Studying Ontogeny with geometric Morphometrics
This is the last call for the workshop “Studying ontogeny with Geometric
Morphometrics”. November 7-9, 2012. Instructor: Dr. Kieran McNulty (University
of Minessota, USA).
This workshop will provide a basic introduction to geometric morphometric
analyses, with an emphasis on using this tool kit to address questions related
to growth, development, and evolution. Simple characterizations of multivariate
ontogeny will give way to more complicated methods for visualizing and
comparing different patterns of growth and development, introducing the idea of
changes in ontogeny as a mechanism for producing evolutionary change. It will
end by discussing the difficulties and misconceptions in interpreting
morphometric analyses of ontogeny, and introduce some of the advanced topics in
ontogeny that morphometricians are beginning to address.

This workshop will be held in the Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de
Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain) and is co-organized by Transmitting Science
and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Few places left.
