Introduction to spatial analysis of ecological data using R (ISAE01)

8 October 2018 - 12 October 2018

£275.00 - £560.00

Course Overview:

This 5-day course will cover the concepts, methods, and R tools that can be used to analyse spatial data in ecology. The start of the course will cover the basics of linear models and spatial data processing in R and provide a common ground for more advanced techniques encountered later on the course. We will cover spatial statistical techniques for both continuous and discrete data response types. We will put special emphasis on understanding mechanisms using visual tools, and quantifying uncertainty for model parameters and predictions. We will introduce Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for spatial hierarchical models and discuss special topics relevant for study design and conservation and management applications. Modules will consist of introductory lectures, guided computer coding, and exercises for the participants, analysing real data.

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in spatial ecology and management and environmental professionals in government and industry.
