Open registration fo​r the course Geometr​ic Morphometrics and​ Phylogeny​

Dear colleagues:

Registration is open for the course "GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS AND 
PHYLOGENY-Fourth edition".

INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester, UK).

DATES: September 3-6, 2013; 30 teaching hours.

PLACE:  Els hostalets de Pierola,  Barcelona (Spain).

Organized by: Transmitting Science, the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia Miquel 
Crusafont and the Council of Hostalets de Pierola.

This workshop provides an overview of the interface between geometric 
morphometrics and phylogenetics. It aims to give an overview of the different
approaches and methods that link the two fields and to enable participants to 
apply them to their own research problems. Lectures that introduce concepts and
methods are integrated with demonstrations of software that put them into 
practice right away. The main emphasis is on mapping shape data on existing
phylogenies to reconstruct the evolutionary history of shape diversification, 
as well as comparative methods that take phylogeny into account. To enhance the
practical approach of the workshop, participants are encouraged to bring their 
own data to conduct analyses and discuss results.

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