This is the last call for the course "Integration and modularity with geometric
morphometrics - Third edition." January 28-31, 2014. Instructor: Dr. Chris
Klingenberg (University of Manchester, UK).
END OF EARLY REGISTRATION WITH REDUCED FEE: SEPTEMBER 30.
Place: Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona, Spain.
Organized by: Transmitting Science, the Institut Català de Paleontologia and the
Council of Els Hostalets de Pierola.
The aim of this course is to provide participants with an overview of
morphometric approaches to studying morphological integration and modularity.
The concepts of integration and modularity will be introduced and discussed in
different contexts (e.g. development, individual variation, evolutionary
change). The theoretical basis and application of different methods for
analyzing integration and modularity in geometric morphometric data will be
presented. Participants are encouraged to bring their own morphometric data for
analysis and discussion in the course.
Moreover, for those participants interested in the analysis of phenotypic
variation in relation with genes, a 20 % off will be offered in the course
“Quantitative Genetics of Shape” that will be held the week after the
Integration and GM course
