This is to inform you that registration for a course entitled "Species distributions models: concepts, methods, applications and challenges", is still open. The deadline is June, 15th, 2014.

The course aims to introduce the fundamental concepts underpinning ecological niche models (ENMs), describe the methods currently in use, and discuss the strengths and limitations of ENMs for different applications. We also plan to have specialized seminars introducing emerging concepts and next-generation approaches for modelling species distributions. The course gives equal weight to theory and application. The students will have the opportunity to learn how to run ENM with R and they will be asked to bring their own data (if such data are not available we can provide our own data). During two days the students will analyse these data and prepare a small report for discussion in the class.
