Introduction to mark-recapture modelling - Newcastle (Aus)

Postby darryl » Mon May 06, 2019 12:19 am

Dates: 22 July - 26 July 2019
Venue: University of Newcastle, Newcastle
Instructor: Darryl I. MacKenzie
Cost: AUD $1000; $100 discount if registered before 10 June

In this 4.5-day workshop participants will be introduced to statistical modelling approaches that can be applied to mark-recapture data through a combination of lectures on the underlying theory, and worked examples. Topics to be covered include:
    Abundance estimation
    Spatially-explicit capture-recapture
    Survival estimation
    Multi-state mark-recapture
    Half-day discussion/consulting session

All examples will be conducted in the freeware R. Participants are expected to be comfortable in using R to perform basic tasks such as data input/output, data summaries, loading packages and simple plots, as this will be the main software used during exercises. This course may not be appropriate for people with no previous experience in using R.
