Integration and Modularity with Geometric Morphometrics-Second Edition

January 3, 2013
Instructor: Dr. Chris Klingenberg (University of Manchester, UK). Date: April 2-5, 2013. Place: Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain). Organized by: Transmitting Science and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. The aim of the workshop 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. Lectures will be combined with hands-on demonstrations of the analyses. Participants are encouraged to bring their own morphometric data for analysis and discussion in the workshop.
