ONLINE COURSE – Model-based multivariate analysis of abundance data using R (MBMV03) This course will be delivered live

16 November 2020 - 27 November 2020

£510.00

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

TIME ZONE – Australian Eastern Daylight Time – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Overview:

This course will provide an introduction to modern multivariate techniques, with a special focus on the analysis of abundance or presence/absence data. Multivariate analysis in ecology has been changing rapidly in recent years, with a focus now on formulating a statistical model to capture key properties of the observed data, rather than transformation of data using a dissimilarity-based framework. In recent years, model-based techniques have been developed for hypothesis testing, identifying indicator species, ordination, clustering, predictive modelling, and use of species traits as predictors to explain interspecific variation in environmental response.  These techniques are more interpretable than alternatives, have better statistical properties, and can be used to address new problems, such as the prediction of a species’ spatial distribution from its traits alone.

Intended Audience

PhD students, research postgraduates, and practicing academics as well as persons in industry working with multivariate data, especially when recorded as presence/absences or some measure of abundance (counts, biomass, % cover, etc).

Venue – Delivered remotely

Availability – 20 places
