Studying the evolution of shape: The 3rd edition of the course Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny has finished

Studying the evolution of shape: The 3rd edition of the course Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny has finishedResearchers from around the world (Brazil, USA, Colombia, Greece, France, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Romania, UK and Spain) met in Sabadell the first week of September to learn from Dr. Klingenberg how to analyse the shape variation in a phylogenetic context.

While mornings were devoted to theory and software learning, people have spent long evenings working with their own data. The huge variety of biological questions promoted debate, questioning and discussion: From flowers and leaves to snails and mosquitoes, from variation between populations to variation inside a family, from phylogenetic correction and estimate ancestral states to levels of integration during evolution, it was plenty of different research lines based on evaluating shape and evolution.

Thanks to all for coming!
