Dear colleagues, 

The 8th edition of the course GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS AND PHYLOGENY has open registration. Basic knowledge of Geometric Morphometrics is required. 

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

DATES: September 11th – 15th, 2017. 

PLACE: Facilities of the Centre of Restauració i Interpretació Paleontologica, Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain). 

Testimonials of previous editions: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/gm/gm-and-phylogeny/#Testimonials


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, etc.).
12. Practice; comparative methods (cont.).
13. Morphometrics, phylogenies and qualitative characters.
14. Disparity and diversification.
15. Presentations of group work.
