Workshop on Quantitative Methods in Population Dynamics

Postby olivier » Tue Jan 30, 2007 10:30 am

Upcoming beginner level workshop on Quantitative Methods in Population Dynamics at University of the Aegean, Mytilene, Greece, 11-15 June 2007.

You are hereby cordially invited to take part in the following workshop:


This workshop will deal with the analysis and modelling of population dynamics. The content is aimed at providing the participants with a solid background in the philosophy, theory and practice for the analysis of data. We will cover population projection matrix models, the estimation of demographic parameters (survival, recruitment, dispersal and growth rate) using capture-recapture models and the estimation of population densities and abundance using capture-recapture and distance sampling models. Finally, we will review recent advances in the combination of those different sources of information (Integrated Population Modelling). The format of the workshop will be a combination of lectures and computer sessions with programs ULM, M-SURGE & U-CARE, DISTANCE and MARK. It is our hope that participants will bring their own data to work on during the workshop. All lectures and course material will be in English.

Teachers: Olivier Gimenez, Jean-Dominique Lebreton, Roger Pradel (CNRS/CEFE, FRANCE) and Panagiotis Besbeas.

The registration fee for the workshop is 360 euros (180 euros for students). Check the websites for details on how to apply.
