The aim of the workshop is to provide participants with an overview of morphometrics approaches to studying morphological integration and modularity. The theoretical basis and application of different methods for analyzing these concepts in geometric morphometric data will be presented. Participants are encouraged to bring their own morphometric data for analysis and discussion in the workshop. 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 (http://www.transmittingscience.org/quant_gen_shape.htm).
