iDigBio is co-hosting a Geometric Morphometrics workshop at ASM 2016.
Date: Friday, June 24th
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Cost per person (includes lunch and refreshments): $20 Students, $30 Non-Students
Minimum number of attendees: none
Maximum number of attendees: 60
The geometric morphometric workshop is designed to introduce researchers to landmark-based analyses of shape and form. Introductory lectures will provide an overview of the theory, methods, and applications of geometric morphometrics, and practical sessions will introduce participants to Geomorph software and assist them in working through a series of morphometric analyses. Datasets will be provided to participants, although researchers are welcome to bring their own landmark data. Participants are encouraged (though not necessary) to acquire a very basic familiarity with R statistical software before the workshop.
