This course will provide an introduction to phylogenetic comparative methods (PCM) focusing on Phylogenetic Generalized Least Squares (PGLS) and introducing Phylogenetic Path Analysis methods. PCMs provide a means of incorporating information about the evolutionary relationships of organisms (phylogeny) in statistical analyses. To enhance the practical approach of the course, participants are encouraged to bring their own data to conduct analyses and discuss the results. More information: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/evol/pcm/ This course will be held in the facilities of the Centre de Restauració i Intepretacio Paleontologica (CRIP), and is co-organized by Transmitting Science, the CRIP and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Places are limited and will be covered by strict registration order.
