Stable Isotope Mixing Models using SIBER, SIAR, MixSIAR (SIMM04)

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/stable-isotope-mixing-models-using-r-simm04/

This course will be delivered by Dr Andrew Parnell and Dr Andrew Jackson from 28th - 31st May 2018 at Orford Musique, 3165 Chemin du Parc, Orford, QC J1X 7A2, Canada

Course overview: 
This course will cover the concepts, technical background and use of stable isotope mixing models (SIMMs) with a particular focus on running them in R. This course will cover the concepts, technical background and use of stable isotope mixing models (SIMMs) with a particular focus on running them in R. Recently SIMMs have become a very popular tool for quantifying food webs and thus the diet of predators and prey in an ecosystem. Starting with only basic understanding of statistical models, we will cover the do’s and don’ts of using SIMMs with a particular focus on the widely used package SIAR and the more advanced MixSIAR. Participants will be taught some of the advanced features of these packages, which will enable them to produce a richer class of output, and are encouraged to bring their own data sets and problems to study during the round-table discussions.

Sunday 27th
Meet at Orford Musique Between 16:00 and 20:00.
Monday 28th
Basic concepts.
Module 1: Introduction; why use a SIMM?
Module 2: An introduction to bayesian statistics.
Module 3: Differences between regression models and SIMMs.
Practical: Revision on using R to load data, create plots and fit statistical models.
Round table discussion: Understanding the output from a Bayesian model.

Tuesday 29th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
Understanding and using SIAR.
Module 4: Do’s and Don’ts of using SIAR.
Module 5: The statistical model behind SIAR.
Practical: Using SIAR for real-world data sets; reporting output; creating richer summaries and plots.
Round table discussion: Issues when using simple SIMMs.

Wednesday 30th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
SIBER and MixSIAR.
Module 6: Creating and understanding Stable Isotope Bayesian Ellipses (SIBER).
Module 7: What are the differences between SIAR and MixSIAR?
Practical: Using MixSIAR on real world data sets; benefits over SIAR.
Round table discussion: When to use which type of SIMM.
