Morphological integration within population results from the way structures develop, and it affects evolution because it determines how easily different combinations of traits can evolve. Integration can be characterised and quantified with morphometric methods. Most studies of integration have focused on single populations or species, but comparisons across multiple species are increasingly common, so that it is possible to examine how integration affects evolution of traits and how integration itself evolves. This seminar will present some of the possibilities and problems of these studies. Examples will include Drosophila wings and mammal skulls.
