Quantitative geographic ecology using R: modelling genomes, niches, and 
communities (QGER01)

Delivered by Dan Warren and Matt Fitzpatrick, this course will take 
place in Glasgow city centre from 30th April - 4th May

Full details can be found at

www.prstatistics.com/course/quantitative-geographic-ecology-using-r-modelling-genomes-niches-and-communities-qger01/

Course Overview:
Spatial modelling is increasingly being used in ecology and evolutionary 
biology for both basic and applied research questions. While emphasis 
traditionally has been on species-level niche modelling, the increasing 
availability of genomic and community-level data has increased interest 
in modelling biodiversity patterns above and below the species level. 
This 5-day course will provide a thorough introduction to different 
spatial modelling techniques for quantifying and visualizing patterns of 
biodiversity across scales of biological organization 'V from 
population-level genetic variation, to species ecological niches, to 
communities. Students will learn about theory, common data types, and 
statistical techniques used in these different applications.

The course will include introductory lectures, guided computer coding in 
R, and exercises for the participants, with an emphasis on visualization 
and reproducible workflows. All modelling and data manipulation will be 
performed with R. Attendees will learn to use niche modelling algorithms 
including Maxent, GLM, GAM, and others, and will learn both new and 
existing methods for conducting comparative studies using ENMs in the 
new ENMTools R package.  Generalized Dissimilarity Modelling (GDM) and 
Gradient Forest (GF) will be taught for modelling genomic and 
community-level data. The course is intended for intermediate R users 
with interest in quantitative geographical ecology.

After successfully completing this course students will:
1) Understand the theory underlying ENMs and the critical assumptions 
necessary to the modelling process.
2) Be able to develop, evaluate, and apply ENMs both in the context of 
conservation-oriented studies and to study niche evolution.
3) Understand the statistical underpinnings of GDM and GF
4) Be able to develop, evaluate and apply GDM and GF for quantifying and 
mapping spatial genetic patterns and community-level compositional 
variation
5) Assess population- and community-level vulnerability to climate 
change
