Drawings of a new era!

Last May (2016) Transmitting Science celebrated the 3rd edition of the course Introduction to Naturalistic and Scientific Illustration by Dr. Oscar Sanisidro. Science background, together with artistic skills helps to obtain accurate visual explanations of scientific phenomena. Scientific illustration becomes an important tool for science. More and more researchers include illustrations, 3D animations and vector schemes in their papers. One example is the lifelike reconstruction of the […]

New quarter, new courses

Summer ended and new courses start. However, trying to make more motivational your back-to-school time, we have three new courses for the final quarter of 2016. Regarding to our Next events section you can check the last courses planned for the 2016 and those for the next year. Before the end of this year, we include three […]

Breaking news, breaking barriers!

The 8th edition of the course Introduction to Geometric Morphometrics travels to Canada. The Banff Center (Alberta) will host the course. From 9th to 13th of January (2017) participants will learn about the main concepts of shape analysis based on landmark coordinates and its multivariate statistical procedures. Geometric Morphometrics has shown as an important tool for analysis […]

Their main aim is training new generations of biosystematists and strengthening research in this field in the Nordic countries. ForBio has been offering courses for the last five years, and recently got funding for five more. They offer practical and […]

Macroevolutionary patterns: How do I work them out?

The second running of the course Introduction to Macroevolutionary Analyses Using Phylogenies is next October (27-31). Already, only a week after opening registration, half the places have been filled. After Felsestein’s paper in 1985, “Phylogenies and the comparative method”, concepts such as ancestor state reconstruction, phylogenetic signal and phylogenetic comparative methods have become common currency […]

Geometric morphometrics in plants hits the mark (and the landmarks)

The course on geometric morphometrics (GMM) in plants in April this year, taught by Professor Chris Klingenberg of Manchester University and co-written with Ruth Flatscher at Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain), was the first successful course on this subject for Transmitting Science: Geometric Morphometrics with Plants. The almost impossible is attempted –to be a […]
