Abundance and occupancy workshop (using RMark and RPresence)

Postby bam59 » Tue Mar 10, 2020 10:15 am

Estimating Animal Abundance and Occupancy
August 10-21, 2020 at Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation Biology in Front Royal, VA

The course is designed to provide a strong theoretical and analytical background to both graduate students and professionals in distance sampling, mark-recapture, and occupancy modeling techniques. All three techniques are aimed at addressing detection probability concerns associated with most animal sampling techniques and are commonly used by ecologists and researchers around the globe. Each of the three analytical frameworks will be taught in 3-4 day modules, each covering a range of modeling approaches and tools, both basic and advanced, with additional focus on study design recommendations. All analytical work will be done in the R environment with a range of relevant packages, and all exercises will use real field data. Time will be made available for consultation with instructors about one's own data and research. The course is taught by Brittany Mosher, Jim Hines, Courtney Davis and Joe Kolowski.
