ONLINE COURSE – Nonlinear Regression using Generalized Additive Models (GAMR01) This course will be delivered live

16th December 2020 - 17th December 2020
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

Course Overview: This course provides a general introduction to nonlinear regression analysis using generalized additive models. As anM introduction, we begin by covering practically and conceptually simple extensions to the general and generalized linear models framework using polynomial regression. We will then cover more powerful and flexible extensions of this modelling framework by way of the general concept of basis functions, which includes spline and radial basis functions. We then move on to the major topic of generalized additive models…

ONLINE COURSE – Structural Equation Modelling for Ecologists and Evolutionary Biologists (SEMR03) This course will be delivered live

18 January 2021 - 22 January 2021
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

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…

ONLINE COURSE – Advanced Ecological Niche Modelling Using R (ANMR01) This course will be delivered online

25 January 2021 - 29 January 2021

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…

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

1 February 2021 - 12 February 2021

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…
