Transmitting Science course: Geometric Morphometrics with Plants
This course is organized by 'Transmitting Science' and offers a self-contained introduction to geometric morphometrics with a special focus on applications in plant evolution and development. Plant-specific aspects of data acquisition and evaluation are discussed, and the particular possibilities of geometric morphometrics in plants will be highlighted. Lectures about general morphological and developmental characteristics of plants are combined with an introduction to the concepts and techniques of shape analysis. Finally, advanced methods such as regression analyses, modularity tests and comparative phylogenetic analyses are presented. This theoretical basis is complemented by hands-on demonstrations of data collection and analyses.
