ForBio course: An introduction to geometric morphometrics using R

The analysis of organismal shape is important to many questions in ecology and evolution. This course will introduce the theory and methods of geometric morphometrics for analysis of shape, its variation and covariation with other variables. The course will include both theoretical and practical sessions. During the theoretical session we will provide a comprehensive introduction to the methods of landmark-based geometric morphometrics. Practical sessions will focus on data acquisition, standardization, and statistical analysis using the R package geomorph and other statistical routines in R. We encourage the participants to bring their own data for taking the most advantage of the course.
