   Dear colleagues,
   
   The 7th edition of the course GEOMET= RIC MORPHOMETRICS AND PHYLOGENY
   has open registration. Basic knowledge of G= eometric Morphometrics is
   required.
   
   GRANTS: Thanks to the donations o= f former participants, this year
   there is a place for free at the course fo= r PhD students. If you
   want to apply please send an e-mail to grants from transm=
   ittingscience.org including: 1- Full name and country, 2- Short
   project (ma= ximum 300 words), 3- Letter of your advisor stating if
   you have any grant t= o develop your PhD. Deadline: March 31st.
   
   INSTRUCTOR: Prof. Chris Kli= ngenberg (University of Manchester, UK).
   
   DATES: September 12th -= ; 16th, 2016.
   
   PLACE: Facilities of the Centre of Restauració i I= nterpretació
   Paleontologica, Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spai= n).

   PROGRAM,
   1. Phyloge= ny, trees and phylogenetic reasoning.
   2. Brief review of geometric morph= ometrics (Procrustes fit, PCA,
   etc.).
   3. Mapping traits onto phylogenies= : squared-change parsimony.
   4. Practice: making/editing Nexus files, map= ping morphometric data
   onto the tree (Mesquite, MorphoJ).
   5. Phylogeneti= c signal, morphometric traits and estimating
   phylogeny.
   6. Comparative m= ethods: independent contrasts.
   7. Application in morphometrics: evolutio= nary allometry and size
   correction.
   8. Practice: comparative methods (Mo= rphoJ).
   9. Application of comparative methods: morphological integration= .
   10. Multi-level analyses of integration: inferring evolutionary
   mechan= isms.
   11. Application of comparative methods: partial least squares (eco=
   morphology, etc.).
   12. Practice; comparative methods (cont.).
   13. Mor= phometrics, phylogenies and qualitative characters.
   14. Disparity and di= versification.
   15. Presentations of group work.
