   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: Marc 31st.
   
   INSTRUCTOR: Prof. Chris Klin= genberg (University of Manchester, UK).
   
   DATES: September 12th -= 16th, 2016.

   PROGRAM,
   1. Phylogen= y, trees and phylogenetic reasoning.
   2. Brief review of geometric morpho= metrics (Procrustes fit, PCA,
   etc.).
   3. Mapping traits onto phylogenies:= squared-change parsimony.
   4. Practice: making/editing Nexus files, mapp= ing morphometric data
   onto the tree (Mesquite, MorphoJ).
   5. Phylogenetic= signal, morphometric traits and estimating phylogeny.
   6. Comparative me= thods: independent contrasts.
   7. Application in morphometrics: evolution= ary allometry and size
   correction.
   8. Practice: comparative methods (Mor= phoJ).
   9. Application of comparative methods: morphological integration.=
   10. Multi-level analyses of integration: inferring evolutionary
   mechani= sms.
   11. Application of comparative methods: partial least squares (ecom=
   orphology, etc.).
   12. Practice; comparative methods (cont.).
   13. Morp= hometrics, phylogenies and qualitative characters.
   14. Disparity and div= ersification.
   15. Presentations of group work.
