MOVEMENT ECOLOGY (MOVE04) online (live and recorded)

21st February 2022 - 25th February 2022

£450

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

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video link, a good internet connection is essential.

TIME ZONE – GMT – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Overview:

The course will cover the concepts, technology and software tools that can be used to analyse movement data (from ringing/CMR to VHF/GPS) in ecology and evolution. We will cover elementary and advanced analysis and modelling techniques broadly applicable across taxa, from micro-organisms to vertebrates, highlighting the advantages of a unified Movement Ecology framework. We will provide the necessary bases in ecology (especially behavioural ecology), physics and mathematics/statistics, to be able to identify for any specific research question the most appropriate study species, logging technology (incl. attachment methods), and statistical/mathematical modelling approach. We will specifically address the challenges and opportunities at each of the steps of the proposed ‘question-driven approach’, combining theory with computer-based practicals in R. We will also address the challenges of applying the results of the analyses to applied management problems and communicate the findings to non-experts.

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in ecology and management and environmental professionals in government and industry. The course will also be of interest to researchers in geography, mathematics and computer science working on movement analyses.
