Geometric Morphometrics Using R (GMMR01)

https://www.prstatis...using-r-gmmr01/

This course is being delivered by Prof. Dean Adams, Prof. Michael Collyer
and Dr. Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou
 
This course will run from 19th – 23rd February 2018 at Margam Discovery
Centre, Wales, UK.
 
The field of geometric morphometrics (GM) is concerned with the
quantification and analysis of patterns of shape variation, and its
covariation with other variables. Over the past several decades these
approaches have become a mainstay in the field of ecology, evolutionary
biology, and anthropology, and a panoply of analytical tools for addressing
specific biological hypotheses concerning shape have been developed. The
goal of this is to provide participants with a working knowledge of the
theory of geometric morphometrics, as well as practical training in the
application of these methods.
 
The course is organized in both theoretical and practical sessions. The
theoretical sessions will provide a comprehensive introduction to the
methods of landmark-based geometric morphometrics, which aims at providing
the participants with a solid theoretical background for understanding the
procedures used in shape data analysis. Practical sessions will include
worked examples, giving the participants the opportunity to gain hands-on
experience in the treatment of shape data using the R package geomorph.
These sessions focus on the generation of shape variables from primary
landmark data, the statistical treatment of shape variation with respect to
biological hypotheses, and the visualization of patterns of shape variation
and of the shapes themselves for interpretation of statistical findings,
using the R language for statistical programming. While practice datasets
will be available, it is strongly recommended that participants come with
their own datasets.
 
Note: Because this is a geometric morphometrics workshop in R, it is
required that participants have some working knowledge in R. The practical
sessions of the course will focus on GM-based analyses, and not basic R
user-interfacing. It is therefore strongly recommended that participants
refresh their R skills prior to attending the workshop.
