Kursbeskrivning
Morphometrics is a field that has a long history and has changed drastically over the last years due to the overwhelming amount of (3D) anatomical data, and the availability of fast computers.

I plan to give a graduate course open to both theoretically inclined students and to more experiment oriented students. There will be common lectures twice a week in period 1 in the fall, but the assignments will be divided into two categories: one more theoretical and the other more applied.
Litteratur
There are two different text-book suggestions: Geometric Morphometrics for Biologists, Zelditch et al, 2004; and Morphometric Tools for Landmark Data, F. Bookstein, 1991
