ONLINE COURSE – Advances in Spatial Analysis of Multivariate Ecological Data: Theory and Practice (MVSP04) This course is pre-recorded with live help

25th April 2022 - 29th April 2022

£400.00

This course will now be delivered by pre-recorded video in light of travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

This is a ‘PRE-RECORDED COURSE’ –  Lectures Are pre-recorded and shared via zoom. The instructors will be available for live help with practicals and to answer any questions. A good internet connection is essential.

TIME ZONE – Multiple timezones – (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Overview:

The course will describe recent methods (concepts and R tools) that can be used to analyse spatial patterns in community ecology. The umbrella concept of the course is beta diversity, which is the spatial variation of communities. These methods are applicable to all types of communities (bacteria, plants, animals) sampled along transects, regular grids or irregularly distributed sites. The new methods, collectively referred to as spatial eigen-function analysis, are grounded into techniques commonly used by community ecologists, which will be described first: simple ordination (PCA, CA, PCoA), multivariate regression and canonical analysis, permutation tests. The choice of dissimilarities that are appropriate for community composition data will also be discussed. The focal question is to determine how much of the community variation (beta diversity) is due to environmental sorting and to community-based processes, including neutral processes. Recently developed methods to partition beta diversity in different ways will be presented. Extensions will be made to temporal and space-time data.

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in spatial ecology particularly communities (bacteria, plants, animals) sampled along transects, regular grids or irregularly distributed sites. The skills learnt can also be applied by management and environmental professionals in government and industry.
