Occupancy estimation and modeling workshop
31 May - 2 June 2006
Texas State University
San Marcos, Texas
Instructors: Darryl MacKenzie, Jim Nichols, Jim Hines and Larissa Bailey
Cost: $350 (USD)
This workshop will cover many of the latest methods for modeling patterns and dynamics of species occurence 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.
Included in the registration fee is a copy of the instructors upcoming book Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurence.
This workshop is sponsored in part by the Population and Conservation Biology and Wildlife Ecology programs at Texas State University.
