This course is entitled to teach the main concepts of shape analysis based on  landmark coordinates and its multivariate procedures, and how they can be put
into practice across any biological discipline in which the phenotype (form) and  its variation are the principal sources of information.

Program:

  • Introduction: Shape, size and biological morphology.
  • Morphometric data: Equipment, landmarks, outlines and surfaces.
  •  Visualizing shapes and shape changes.
  • Looking at variation: PCA.
  • Distinguishing groups: CVA and discriminant analysis.
  • Symmetry and asymmetry.
  • Morphometrics in a messy world: outliers and measurement error.
  • Regression and allometry.
  • Covariation between things: PLS.
  • Morphological integration.
  • Modularity.
  • Phylogeny and comparative methods.
  • Putting things together: Combining analyses to solve biological questions.
  • Presentation of group work by participants.
