Teaches – Landscape (population) genetic data analysis using R

Rodney is an applied population geneticist his research is focused on gene flow spanning temporal and spatial scales from mapping pollinator movement during single mating event to uncovering shared spatial patterns of species movement during the current interglacial.  His work combines GIS, spatial modeling, and graph theory, and population genetic theory to characterize how intervening landscape structure modifies patterns of genetic connectivity.

Bioacoustics for ecologists: Hardware, Survey design and Data analysis (BIAC01)

1 July 2019 - 5 July 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will introduce and explain the different applications for bioacoustics to answer ecological questions. Starting with a detailed overview of the correct and most efficient methods of data collecting in the field, this course will then go on to show delegates cutting edge methods for analysing and interpreting different types of bioacoustic data. By the end of this 5-day practical course, attendees will have the capacity to set up and deploy recording devices, download acoustic data, how…

Conservation planning using PRIORITIZR : from theory to practice (PRTZ01)

7 October 2019 - 11 October 2019
Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Βασ. Σοφίας 127, Αθήνα, 11521, 115 21,
Athens, Greece

Course Overview: This 5-day workshop will introduce the development and application of Marxan type spatial planning tools to prioritize land acquisition, easements and incentives in favor of conservation. We are going to use the prioritizr framework (https://prioritizr.github.io/prioritizr/) and an example developed for the Coastal Douglas Fir Conservation Partnership (CDFCP) region by the group of Peter Arcese at UBC (http://arcese.forestry.ubc.ca/marxan-tool-cdfcp/) The reserve design problem will be introduced using examples from the BC Central Coast, Georgia Basin-Willamette Valley of BC, WA and…

Introduction to structured population models and demographic distribution models (IIPM01)

18 November 2019 - 22 November 2019
Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Βασ. Σοφίας 127, Αθήνα, 11521, 115 21,
Athens, Greece

Course Overview Structured population models have become a central tool to explore evolutionary and ecological processes, such as selection gradients or responses to climate change, based on field demographic data. With recent advances in theoretical ecology and computing power, these models have further evolved. Over the last decade, Integral Projection Models (IPMs), a generalization of Matrix Populations Models, have gained popularity because of their simplicity, robustness, and flexibility. This course will draw on the connections between these approaches to help…

Advanced Range, Niche, and Distribution Modeling (ASDM01)

25 November 2019 - 29 November 2019
Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Pasteur Hellenic Institute, Βασ. Σοφίας 127, Αθήνα, 11521, 115 21,
Athens, Greece

Course Overview Range modeling, also known as niche, distribution, or habitat use modeling, is among the most widely used tools in ecology. Its popularity is evidenced by the wide range of conceptual and statistical approaches that have been developed over the last two decades for quantifying ranges. We will spend much of our time on the most popular approach to range modeling - presence-only models - however we will draw connections to other data types and general principles for any…
