   Dear colleague,
   
   Registration is open for the cou= rse "INTRODUCTION TO GEOMETRIC
   MORPHOMETRICS- 7th edition".:-)= 60;
   INSTRUCTORS: Prof. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester= , UK)
   and Dr. Jesús  Marugán (UAM, Spain).
   Dates: June 20-24, 2016.
   More information and registratio=
   n:  http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/gm/introduction-to=
   -gm/
   This course is entitled to teach the main concep= ts of shape analysis
   based on  landmark coordinates and its multi= variate procedures, and
   how they can be put
   into practice across = any biological discipline in which the
   phenotype (form) and  its = variation are the principal sources of
   information.
   
   Program:
   <= li>Introduction: Shape, size and biological morphology.
    1. Morphometri= c data: Equipment, landmarks, outlines and surfaces.
    2. Visualiz= ing shapes and shape changes.
    3. Looking at variation: PCA.
    4. Di= stinguishing groups: CVA and discriminant analysis.
    5. Symmetry and as= ymmetry.
    6. Morphometrics in a messy world: outliers and measurement e= rror.
    7. Regression and allometry.
    8. Covariation between things:= PLS.
    9. Morphological integration.
   10. Modularity.
   11. Phylog= eny and comparative methods.
   12. Putting things together: Combining ana= lyses to solve biological
       questions.
   13. Presentation of group work by = participants.
       
   Please feel free to distribute this information b= etween your
   colleagues if you consider it appropriate.
   
   With= best regards
