This course is entitled to teach the main concepts of = shape
analysis based on landmark coordinates and its multivariate proc=
edures, and how they can be put into practice across any biological
discipl= ine in which the phenotype (form) and its variation are the
principal sourc= es of information.
1. Introduction: Shape, size and = biological morphology.
2. Morphometric data: Equipment, landmarks, out= lines and surfaces.
3. Visualizing shapes and shape changes.
4. L= ooking at variation: PCA.
5. Distinguishing groups: CVA and discrimina= nt analysis.
6. Symmetry and asymmetry.
7. Morphometrics in a mes= sy world: outliers and measurement error.
8. Regression and allometry.=
9. Covariation between things: PLS.
10. Morphological integration= .
12. Phylogeny and comparative methods.
13. Pu= tting things together: Combining analyses to solve biological
14. Presentation of group work by participants.
Software that= will be used during the course: TPS, ImageJ (FIJI) and
