Introduction to statistics and R for everyone (IRFE01)

18th March 2019 - 22nd March 2019
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, Greece

Course Overview: This course will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how (a) to understand and read modern statistics reported in scientific studies, (b) use basic modern statistics for analysing their own data, using the open access R statistical software. The course will focus more on data deriving from life sciences namely medicine, biology, and ecology. The course will initially revise basic statistical knowledge of what is a sample and a distribution, and what is hypothesis testing. Sequentially, attendees…

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

7th October 2019 - 11th October 2019
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, 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…

A complete guide to mixed models (including temporal and spatial autocorrelation) MMTS01

21st October 2019 - 25th October 2019
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, Greece

Course Overview: This course will cover advanced statistics regarding the analysis of data using comprehensive and state-of-the-art techniques. All methods will be illustrated using the free, open-source software package R. The course is designed for attendees that have a basic knowledge of R and elementary statistics and wish to advance this to up-to-date journal publication or conference proceedings standards. The course will cover mixed effects models, model selection and multi-model inference, generalized linear models (i.e. analysis of non-normally distributed datasets),…

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

18th November 2019 - 22nd November 2019
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, 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)

25th November 2019 - 29th November 2019
Asteri Village, Chamalevri 741 00,
Crete, 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…
