Description
Gain in-depth knowledge of analysis techniques for ecological research, employing R: classical regression models; mixed models; generalized linear models; and how to deal with the limitations of real datasets. Participants learn how to choose appropriate analyses for different research questions, and about the assumptions underlying each model. Through the lectures and hands-on exercises participants learn how to design their own studies, explore their data, perform a range of analyses, understand fitted models, and clearly explain their results. By the end of the course, participants will be able to conduct sophisticated statistical analyses, critically evaluate statistics-based material in current research literature, and deal with the limitations of real datasets in the context of conservation science. Applications should be submitted following the link from the course webpage.
