Subject: COURSE: AniMove: Animal Movement Analysis for Conservation
Course Dates: March 31-April 11, 2014
Location: Front Royal, Virginia, USA
Description: Animal movements are critical for maintaining ecosystems and biodiversity. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track animal movements, but analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of tracking data can present scientific, computational, and technical challenges. This two-week course focuses on interdisciplinary approaches linking animal movement with environmental factors to address theoretical and applied questions in conservation biology. To achieve this, participants will acquire significant skills in computational ecology, modeling, remote sensing, and GIS.
