Hierarchical modeling workshop in Monpellier

August 28, 2015 Etc R course data cloning dclone

One-day teaching workshop at ICCB/ECCB congress in Monpellier on August 1st, 2015.

This training course is aimed towards the conservation professionals who need to understand and feel comfortable with modern statistical and computational tools used to address pressing conservation issues.

By presenting both Bayesian and Likelihood based approaches, the participants will be able to go beyond the rhetorics of philosophy of statistics and use the tools with full understanding of their assumptions and implications.

Check out the course material at DataCloning.org, or sign up for the Dclone users mailing list.

Statistical computing meets biodiversity conservation and natural resource management

What is new in the intrval R package?

An update (v 0.1-1) of the intrval package was recently published on CRAN. The package simplifies interval related logical operations (read more about the motivation in this post). So what is new in this version? Some of the inconsistencies in the 1st CRAN release have been cleaned up, and I have been pushed hard (see GitHub issue to implement all the 16 interval-to-interval operators. These operators define the open/closed nature of the lower/upper limits of the intervals on the left and right hand side of the o in the middle as in c(a1, b1) %[]o[]% c(a2, b2).
