It was tiring, but a lot of fun - and I hope it was as rewarding for the students as it was for me.
This year's workshop in Bariloche was not spared. Firstly, the design:
## Loading required package: ape
## Loading required package: maps
library(plotrix) source("http://www.phytools.org/Bariloche2016/data/arctext.R") set.seed(545) tree<-pbtree(n=78,scale=0.8) txt<-write.tree(tree) txt<-strsplit(txt,";")[] txt<-paste("((Y:0.9,",txt,":0.1):0.1,Z:1);",sep="") tree<-read.tree(text=txt) tree<-phytools:::lambdaTree(tree,0.95) tree<-make.era.map(tree,c(0,0.4,0.8)) par(bg="darkgrey") par(ljoin=1,lmitre=30) par(mar=rep(0,4)) col<-rgb(red=117/255,green=170/255,blue=219/255) par(fg="transparent") plot(tree,colors=setNames(rep("black",3),1:3), lwd=10,type="fan",part=0.5,ftype="off",ylim=c(-0.2,1.2), lend=1) par(fg="black") plot(tree,colors=setNames(c(col,"white",col),1:3), lwd=8,type="fan",part=0.5,ftype="off",ylim=c(-0.2,1.2), lend=1,add=TRUE) text(mean(par()$usr[1:2]),-0.15,"Bariloche, Argentina 2016", col="black",cex=2.7,font=2) chars<-strsplit("Latin American Macroevolution Workshop","")[] stretch<-rep(1.1,length(chars)) arctext("Latin American Macroevolution Workshop",center=c(0,0),radius=1.1, cex=3.5,font=2,stretch=stretch)

The only small wrinkle is that I tweaked the code of
arctext in the plotrix package to get the text to look the way I wanted it to.
Finally, but most importantly, the students (& me) sporting our t-shirts:

Many thanks to course organizers Lina Moreno Azócar & Félix Cruz, who were wonderful hosts, helped put together a terrific course, and who also had the wonderful patience to drive me back & forth across the border to Chile (no small task) so I didn't have to fly through Buenos Aires!
Until next time Argentina!
