We still have a few spaces left on the course "Model base multivariate analysis of abundance data using R (MBMV02)" 

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/model-base-multivariate-analysis-of-abundance-data-using-r-mbmv02/

Deadline for registration is 28.06.18

This course is delivered by Prof. David Warton and will take place in Glasgow from 8th - 12th July 2018.


Course Overview:
This course will provide an introduction to modern multivariate techniques, with a special focus on the analysis of abundance or presence/absence data. Multivariate analysis in ecology has been changing rapidly in recent years, with a focus now on formulating a statistical model to capture key properties of the observed data, rather than transformation of data using a dissimilarity-based framework. In recent years, model-based techniques have been developed for hypothesis testing, identifying indicator species, ordination, clustering, predictive modelling, and use of species traits as predictors to explain interspecific variation in environmental response.  These techniques are more interpretable than alternatives, have better statistical properties, and can be used to address new problems, such as the prediction of a species’ spatial distribution from its traits alone.
