Instructors: Marc Kéry & Jérôme Guélat, Swiss Ornithological Institute
Date: 9–11 February 2015
Venue: Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R, JAGS and WinBUGS or OpenBUGS
Costs: 1000 Reais (400 US$) 

This course gives an introduction to Bayesian statistical modeling using BUGS software and then introduces a key class of models for the analysis of species distribution, habitat selection, occurrence and abundance: site‐occupancy models (MacKenzie et al. 2002, 2003; Tyre et al. 2003). Model fitting is shown using the Bayesian BUGS software and the R package unmarked. The course follows the book “Bayesian population analysis using WinBUGS” (Academic Press, 2012) by Kéry & Schaub and the upcoming book “Applied hierarchical models in ecology” (Academic Press, 2015) by Marc Kéry & Andy Royle.
