Last call for the workshop Studying Ontogeny with geometric Morphometrics

Dear Colleagues:
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.
