Niche Models Workshop - Online
Understanding, developing, and interpreting niche/habitat selection models for species conservation and management will be the foundation of the Niche Model Workshop.
One-week course on resource selection function modeling and interpretation to:
- Learn new and old techniques and how to choose the right modeling approach
- Grow your understanding of how habitat selection models are best used to support species conservation and management
- Gain access to our quick-start tools, including computer code, and adapt them to your own projects
- Bring your own data for consultation with our experts to select the most appropriate data structure and model forms for analyses for your research questions
WHO: Anyone with an interest in understanding or developing resource selection function models to support species conservation and management. Early – late career professionals, academics, and students.
WHEN: January 13-17, 2020.
WHERE: Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO and online via Zoom.
INSTRUCTORS: Cameron Aldridge, Adrian Monroe, David Edmunds, Julie Heinrichs
REQUIREMENTS: Access to a laptop/notebook with R. No prior experience necessary. We will start with the basics of visualizing data in R and progress to full habitat models of varying complexity.
