Date: 12-14 March 2018 (3 days)

Location: Banff, Canada

USD$600 (normal rate) or USD$450 (student rate). Cost includes
breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks.

This course introduces key models used in the analysis of
spatially-explicit capture-recapture data using Bayesian and classical
(likelihood) methods. It will closely follow material from the book
"Spatial Capture-Recapture" (Elsevier, 2014). The workshop will cover
basic model and data analysis concepts in R and the BUGS language
(using WinBUGS or JAGS), analysis of classical capture-recapture
models (models M0, Mb, Mh, etc...), concepts and methods of spatial
capture-recapture models and their analysis using the R package "oSCR"
and also using the BUGS language. Advanced topics will include open
population models and integrated population models.
