R is an open-source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is widely used by statisticians all over the world, and researchers from many different fields use R for data analysis. The aim of this course is to give an introduction to R addressed to people that has never used R.

Taxonomists need a common language worldwide. This is provided by the international codes of nomenclature. Although several codes exist, according to the organisms at stake, they all follow a similar mode of allocation of names to taxa (through “types”) and of establishment of the valid name for a taxon (priority, first-reviser, usage). As biological nomenclature is rarely taught in academic formations, many taxonomists have difficulties mastering it.

DEST-Taxonomy Training on Geometric Morphometrics and Phylogeny

Event type 
Training

This course provides an overview of the interface between geometric morphometrics and phylogenetics. It aims to give an overview of the different approaches and methods that link the two fields and to enable participants to apply them to their own research problems. Lectures that introduce concepts and methods are integrated with demonstrations of software that put them into practice right away. The main emphasis is on mapping shape data on existing phylogenies to reconstruct the evolutionary history of shape diversification, as well as comparative methods that take phylogeny into account.
