   Dear colleagues,
   The 11^th edition of Transmitting Science course "INTRODUCTION TO
   GEOME= TRIC MORPHOMETRICS- 10th edition" has opened registration.
   INSTRU= CTORS: Prof. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester, UK)
   and Dr. Jes&#= 250;s Marugán (UAM, Spain).
   Dates: May 27th-31st, 2019, Barcelon= a (Spain)
   More information and registration: http://bit.ly/trans=
   mittingscience-geometric-morphometrics or writing to
   courses from transmittingsc= ience.org
   This course is entitled to teach the main concepts of = shape
   analysis based on landmark coordinates and its multivariate proc=
   edures, and how they can be put into practice across any biological
   discipl= ine in which the phenotype (form) and its variation are the
   principal sourc= es of information.
    1. Introduction: Shape, size and = biological morphology.
    2. Morphometric data: Equipment, landmarks, out= lines and surfaces.
    3. Visualizing shapes and shape changes.
    4. L= ooking at variation: PCA.
    5. Distinguishing groups: CVA and discrimina= nt analysis.
    6. Symmetry and asymmetry.
    7. Morphometrics in a mes= sy world: outliers and measurement error.
    8. Regression and allometry.=
    9. Covariation between things: PLS.
   10. Morphological integration= .
   11. Modularity.
   12. Phylogeny and comparative methods.
   13. Pu= tting things together: Combining analyses to solve biological
   14. Presentation of group work by participants.
   Software that= will be used during the course: TPS, ImageJ (FIJI) and
   Pleas= e feel free to distribute this information between your
   colleagues if you c= onsider it appropriate.
   Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any= question regarding this
