Course Announcement -

Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology

Occupancy Modelling  Course
April 16-18, 2013
Coast Hillcrest Hotel, Revelstoke BC

Details and registration are at http://www.cmiae.org/Events/

Our instructor is Dr. Carl Schwarz, Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Simon Fraser University (http://www.stat.sfu.ca/~cschwarz/).

Course description
The presence or absence of a species in a set of units (polygons, landscape units, territories, etc.) is a fundamental concept in many ecological studies (e.g., resource selection modelling, biodiversity, range). Visits to sampled units can result in a positive detection of a species or a non-detection of the species in that unit. However, a species may not always be detected if present which results in "false negatives". If the issue of detectability is not accounted for, estimates that rely on the level of occupancy can be misleading.  This course will cover methods for modelling species occurrence while accounting for potential false negatives.

Course outline
1. Introduction

        differences/similarities of occupancy and capture-recapture modelling
        role of detectability
        basic statistical review
        concepts and notations
        binomial data, odds ratios
        basic likelihood
        model selection and multi-model inference

2. Single-season occupancy models

        basic sampling protocol
        PRESENCE software to fitting single-season models
        model assumptions
        dealing with missing data
        dealing with heterogeneity
        more advanced features of PRESENCE - design matrices/covariates
        planning studies; GENPRES software


3. Multiple-season occupancy models

        sampling protocol
        dynamics of population across seasons
        using PRESENCE
        alternative parameterizations
        characterizing occupancy dynamics
        modelling spatial correlations in occupancy dynamics
        dealing with missing data
        dealing with covariates
        study design


4. Species co-occurrence models

        sharing information among species
        species richness or biodiversity
        single season models multi season models


5. Extensions

        incorporation of count data
        incorporation of marked animals
        incorporation of telemetry data

Faco parte da turma foulard-addict. Sou fa de esmtapas, mas raramente uso alguma, meu cotidiano eh all black . Entao, os foulards garantem um colorido interessante, mesmo que apareca apenas amarrado na bolsa. Tambem gosto de amarrar no pescoco, contudo, minha canicula companheira nao permite. Fica reservado para as viagens. Quando voce mostrou a primeira vez eu amei e nao comentei, por isso registro agora que fiquei encantada com as sedas da D&G e especialmente com a Pucci. Valorizacao total do historico da casa, do DNA outrora meio abandonado nas passarelas, mas pujante nas lojas. Achei lindo, emocionante e te agradeco por me mostrar tudo isso.
