Course Disentangling​ evolutionary relati​onships with Phyloge​netic Comparative Me​thods



Dear Colleagues:

Registration is open for the course "Disentangling evolutionary relationships 
with Phylogenetic Comparative Methods - Second edition"; October 7-11, 2013.
 
INSTRUCTORS: Dr. Alejandro González-Voyer (EBD, Spain) and Dr. Achaz von 
Hardenberg  (Alpine Wildlife Research Centre, Italy) .
 
SITE: Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona, Spain.


SVP, APA, EAVP and SEP MEMBERS WILL HAVE A 20 % DISCOUNT
 
This course will provide an introduction to phylogenetic comparative methods 
(PCM) focusing on Phylogenetic Generalized Least Squares (PGLS) and introducing 
Phylogenetic Path Analysis methods. PCMs provide a means of incorporating 
information about the evolutionary relationships of organisms (phylogeny) in 
statistical analyses. To enhance the practical approach of the course, 
participants are encouraged to bring their own data to conduct analyses and 
discuss the results.

This course will be held in the facilities of the Centre de Restauració i 
Intepretacio Paleontologica (CRIP), and is co-organized by Transmitting 
Science, the CRIP and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Places are limited 
and will be covered by strict registration order. 


Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you 
consider it appropriate.


With best regards
