Fuzzy logic to address gradual patterns in species distribution and diversity (FLDD01)

11 May 2020 - 14 May 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Live beings are constantly in motion and occur with varying frequency across space. Hence, categorical occurrence maps are always incomplete and oversimplified representations of species’ actual distributions. Analyses that build on such categorical data, such as most diversity, overlap and (dis)similarity indices, overlook important gradations in species occurrence. Fuzzy logic is a valuable tool to formally address the locational uncertainty and gradual variations that characterize biodiversity patterns. This course will show how fuzzy logic can be incorporated in…

Structural Equation Modelling for Ecologists and Evolutionary Biologists (SEMR03) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

18 May 2020 - 22 May 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: The course is a primer on structural equation modelling (SEM) and confirmatory path analysis, with an emphasis on practical skills and applications to real-world data. Structural equation modelling is a rapidly growing technique in ecology and evolution that unites multiple hypotheses in a single causal network. It provides an intuitive graphical representation of relationships among variables, underpinned by well-described mathematical estimation procedures. Several advances in SEM over the past few years have expanded its utility for typical ecological…

Landscape genetic data analysis using R (LNDG04)

1 June 2020 - 5 June 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: The term ‘landscape genetics’ has been applied studies that integrate ecological context and intervening landscape into population genetic analyses of contemporary processes such as gene flow and migration.  This course will cover the basics of both quantitative landscape ecology and population genetics, focusing on how we develop and evaluate spatial/genetic analyses using the R platform. Intended Audience This course is suitable for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and primary investigators interested in learning how to integrate landscape ecological and…

Advanced Ecological Niche Modelling Using R (ANMR01)

12 October 2020 - 16 October 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Ecological niche, species distribution, habitat distribution, or climatic envelope models are different names for mechanistic and correlative models, which are empirical or mathematical approaches to the ecological niche of a species. These methods relate different types of ecogeographical variables (environmental, topographical, human) to species physiological data or geographical locations, in order to identify the factors limiting and defining the species' niche. ENMs have become popular because of their efficiency in the design and implementation of conservation management. Have…
