This course provides an overview of the interface between geometric
morphometrics and phylogenetics. It aims to give an overview of the different
approaches and methods that link the two fields and to enable participants to
apply them to their own research problems. Lectures that introduce concepts and
methods are integrated with demonstrations of software that put them into
practice right away. The main emphasis is on mapping shape data on existing
phylogenies to reconstruct the evolutionary history of shape diversification, as
well as comparative methods that take phylogeny into account. To enhance the
practical approach of the course, participants are encouraged to bring their own
data to conduct analyses and discuss results.
Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you
consider it appropriate.
With best regards
