Subject: Statistics for Ecology and Conservation Biology (March 9-20, 2020)

Gain in-depth knowledge of regression-based analytical approaches in ecological research, employing R: classical regression models; mixed models; generalized linear models; how to deal with the limitations of real datasets; and conservation-specific approaches. Participants learn how to choose appropriate analyses for different research questions, and about the assumptions underlying each model. Through the lectures and hands-on exercises participants learn how to explore their data, perform a range of analyses, understand fitted models, and clearly explain their results. By the end of the course, participants will be able to conduct sophisticated statistical analyses, critically evaluate statistics-based material in current research literature, and deal with the limitations of real datasets in the context of conservation science.

Location: Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation, Front Royal, VA, USA

Dates: March 9-20, 2020

Thanks a lot for sharing the statistics of ecology and conservation biology here. I will be using these stats in the web site I am working at and I think that’s the best thing for me currently. Would you say it’s the same for you?
