Pre-conference workshop on statistical modeling of distribution and abundance

On Wed-Fri before the conference (11-13 September 2013), Marc Kéry and Jérôme Guélat from the Swiss Ornithological Institute (Sempach) will offer a 3-day workshop on the statistical mapping and modeling of distribution and abundance using R/unmarked, WinBUGS and JAGS. The course will include an introduction to the concepts of abundance and distribution and to the statistical modeling using likelihood and Bayesian methods and then cover in depth static and dynamic site-occupancy models (MacKenzie et al., Ecology, 2002, 2003), N-mixture models (Royle, Biometrics, 2004) and multi-species occupancy (community) models (Dorazio & Royle, JASA, 2005; Dorazio et al., Ecology, 2006).
