Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny – 6th Edition

“The best aspect of this course is that we applied what we learned to our own datasets during the practical sessions. I very much appreciated Prof. Klingenberg teaching style; he always made time to answer our questions. I especially thank Dr. Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno, the course coordinator, she really looked after us; we had nothing to do but learn. I really enjoyed my time in the Els Hostalets de Pierola and believe that the training provided by this course has provided me with a solid footing from which to expand my knowledge and practice of geometric morphometrics.”

Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny – 6th Edition

“The week I just spent under the tutelage of Prof. Klingenberg has crystallized and expanded my understanding of phylogenetic methods for morphometric data. Our group was diverse in terms of our specialties and levels of experience, and it seems like the course managed to be well-suited to all of us. Equally important, we were well taken care of and fantastically well fed. It was a great week. Intense, fun, worth the hard work. I will do another one in the future. Thank you!”
