Advanced Range, Niche, and Distribution Modeling (ASDM01)

25 November 2019 - 29 November 2019


Course Overview

Range modeling, also known as niche, distribution, or habitat use modeling, is among the most widely used tools in ecology. Its popularity is evidenced by the wide range of conceptual and statistical approaches that have been developed over the last two decades for quantifying ranges. We will spend much of our time on the most popular approach to range modeling – presence-only models – however we will draw connections to other data types and general principles for any range model throughout. We will emphasize understanding how modeling decisions affect predictions and identify whether biology or statistics can provide insights into those decisions. By surveying a broad spectrum of approaches, you’ll learn how to find the right tool for the job and understand the pros and cons of each. Each day we will reserve time for open work sessions where students can receive mentoring while applying new skills to their own data sets or example data sets provided by the instructors.

Intended Audience

Researchers interested in advancing their range modeling and statistical skills with a comprehensive survey of available tools in biogeography and habit use.
