Spatial analysis of ecological data using R (SPAE05)

7 August 2017 - 12 August 2017

£300.00 - £600.00

Course Overview:

The course will cover the concepts and R tools that can be used to analyse spatial data in ecology covering elementary and advanced spatial analysis techniques applicable to both plants and animals. We will investigate analyses appropriate to transect (e.g. line surveys, trapping arrays), grid (e.g. occupancy surveys) and point data (e.g. telemetry). The focal questions will be on deriving species distributions, determining their environmental drivers and quantifying different types of associated uncertainty. Novel methodology for generating predictions will be introduced. We will also address the challenges of applying the results of these methods to wildlife conservation and resource management and communicate the findings to non-experts.

Intended Audience

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