Movement ecology (MOVE03) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

24th February 2020 - 28th February 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

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 to novel biologging data) in ecology and evolution, covering analysis techniques applicable broadly to most taxa, from micro-organisms to plants and animals. We will cover elementary and advanced analysis and modelling techniques broadly applicable across taxa, highlighting the advantages of a unified Movement Ecology framework. We will provide the necessary bases in ecology (especially behavioural ecology),…

Population genetics inference with ‘Migrate’ (PGMG01) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

16th March 2020 - 20th March 2020
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This 5-day course will cover population genetics data analysis using the software <i>Migrate</i>. Students will learn to operate the software to infer gene flow and population divergence model using sequence data and microsatellite marker data and compare and choose among different population genetics models. The course has two major components: a theoretical and a hands-on component where participants will use the software on their own computers. In the theoretical section, we will review coalescence theory and discuss concepts…

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

11th May 2020 - 14th 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

18th May 2020 - 22nd 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…

Advanced Ecological Niche Modelling Using R (ANMR01) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

12th October 2020 - 16th 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…
