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

Introducing the bSims R package for simulating bird point counts

The bSims R package is a highly scientific and utterly addictive bird point count simulator. Highly scientific, because it implements a spatially explicit mechanistic simulation that is based on statistical models widely used in bird point count analysis (i.e. removal models, distance sampling), and utterly addictive because the implementation is designed to allow rapid interactive exploration (via shiny apps) and efficient simulation (supporting various parallel backends), thus elevating the user experience.
