Species Occurrence Workshops, Vancouver & Quebec, March 2011

Postby darryl » Sun Dec 26, 2010 4:54 pm

Modeling Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence Workshop
Instructor: Darryl I. MacKenzie, Proteus Wildlife Research Consultants
Vancouver, 7-11 or 21-25 March 2011 (dates to be confirmed)
Quebec, 14-18 March 2011
Indicative Cost (to be confirmed): CAD$700

The presence or absence of a species across a set of landscape units is a fundamental concept widely used in ecology (e.g., species range or distribution, epidemiology, habitat modeling, resource selection probability functions, as a monitoring metric, metapopulation studies, biodiversity and species co-occurrence). An important sampling issue, however, is that a species may not always be detected when present at a landscape unit. This will result in "false absences" causing parameter estimates to be biased if unaccounted for, possibly leading to misleading results and conclusions, even with moderate levels of imperfect detection.

This workshop will cover many of the latest methods for modeling patterns and dynamics of species occurrence in a landscape while accounting for the imperfect detection of the species. Participants will be introduced to available software through worked examples, and there will be special emphasis on aspects of study design. While primarily aimed at the beginner and intermediate level, more experienced researchers will also benefit from attending.
