  1. Michael Wink and his team at Heidelberg University offer a hand-on workshop on DNA analytics in ornithology February 13-15, 2015. The lectures will cover a wide range of topics from phylogenetics, phylogeography and paternity studies to SNP analyses and handling of “big data” in the context of Next Generation Sequencing. Practical exercises will include phylogenetic reconstructions and microsatellite analyses. Please register with Petra Fellhauer (fellhauer@uni-heidelberg.de) by January 20 (participation fee: 130 € including snacks, excluding accommodation, travelling and full meals).
  2. Assessing the Probability of Species Occurrence and Detection with Occupancy Models Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015; 8AM-5PM Cost: $60 USD Maximum Enrollment: 25 Presented by the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate Biology http://thesnvb.org/annual-meeting-2015/ Instructors: Mike Adams and Tara Chestnut, USGS Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI Program) In ecological research, it is often of interest to ask questions about the probability of species occurrence when detection is imperfect. For example, how does the probability that a pond is occupied by red-legged frogs relate to th
  3. Instructors: Marc Kéry & Jérôme Guélat, Swiss Ornithological Institute Date: 9–11 February 2015 Venue: Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R, JAGS and WinBUGS or OpenBUGS Costs: 1000 Reais (400 US$) 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
  4. Program R Workshop 9-13 March 2015 The Great Plains Natural Science Society and the Department of Natural Resource Management at South Dakota State University will host a Program R Workshop in Brookings, SD. The 4.5-day workshop will be presented by Dr. Darryl MacKenzie at the Swiftel Center. The workshop will cover many beginning and intermediate level topics and participants will be introduced to various statistical procedures through worked examples. Topics to be covered include: Basic Operators Plotting Functions Arrays and Matrices Descriptive Analysis Basic Statistical Tests Linear Mode
  5. Modeling Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence The Modeling Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence Workshop will be held at the Swiftel Center in Brookings, SD, 16-20 March 2015. NOTE: The workshop is strictly limited to a set number of registrants. OVERVIEW The presence or absence of a species across a set of landscape units is a fundamental concept widely used in ecology (e.g., species range or distribution, epidemiology, habitat modeling, resource selection probability functions, as a monitoring metric, metapopulation studies, biodiversity, and species co-occurrence). An importan
  6. APPLIED BAYESIAN DATA ANALYSIS USING STAN OCTOBER 24 – 25, 2014 Daniel Lee, Department of Statistics, Columbia University, New York Michael Betancourt, Department of Statistical Sciences, University College London Location: Swiss Ornithological Institute, Sempach, Switzerland Workshop leaders Daniel Lee and Michael Betancourt are members of the core development team of STAN. Both are excellent software engineers. They work with Prof. Andrew Gelman on applied Bayesian statistics, modelling and software development. Daniel is doing research on Monte Carlo Markov chains (MCMC) and
  7. Intermediate-level workshop Bayesian population analysis using BUGS and JAGS Instructors: Marc Kéry & Michael Schaub, Swiss Ornithological Institute Date: 22–26 September 2014 Venue: College of Forestry and Conservation, University of Montana, Missoula Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R and WinBUGS, JAGS or OpenBUGS Costs: 603 USD This course introduces many key models used in the analysis of distribution, abundance and survival, as well as their spatial and temporal patterns, in a Bayesian analysis framework. It closely follows ou
  8. Several workshops will be held at the 21st annual conference of The Wildlife Society to be held October 25-30, 2014 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Many of these may be of interest to people working with birds. This is a preliminary list. They will be adding more sessions through July as each one is confirmed. All workshops will be full day sessions held on Saturday, Oct. 25, unless noted otherwise. Human-Carnivore Interactions and Management in the Eastern USA Estimating Resource Selection Using R Feedback for Student Reviewers of TWS Journals (Workshop scheduled for Tuesday, Oct

  11. 1st Annual Graduate Workshop on Environmental Data Analytics July 28 – August 1, 2014 National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder CO. Applications due *March 17, 2014*. Travel and lodging fellowships are available. Workshop website: www2.image.ucar.edu/event/env-analytics This workshop series is designed to help prepare the next generation of researchers and practitioners to work within, and contribute to, the data-rich era. Each workshop will bring together graduate students and senior scientists in environmental statistics and related fields to explore contemporary topics in appli
  12. A Workshop will be held in the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM), University of St Andrews, from 2nd - 4th June 2014. Integrated nested Laplacian approximation (INLA) facilitates the fitting of a large range of complex statistical models by dramatically reducing computation time. This three day workshop discusses how spatial models may be fitted with INLA using the package R-INLA. We discuss a wide range of different types of spatial models, in particular complex spatial models, spatial point process models and hierarchical models. We will also introdu
  13. Training Announcement Data Analysis IIIB: Environmental Sampling and Monitoring using R (CSP4230) Course Dates: December 10-14, 2012 Location: Shepherdstown, WV Course Description/Course Overview: This course will develop the participant’s skills needed to monitor species trends and distributions, and assess changes due to management actions or impacts in the environment. The design aspects used in class will address the ecological and predictive capacity of prospective approaches, with the overall aim of increasing the predictive power of the analyses and reducing the error as
  14. The Bioacoustics Research Program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY will be running a Sound Analysis Workshop from August 6-10, 2012. There are 4 places available (maximum class size is 10). Please see here for more details http://www.birds.cor...lysis-workshops . The curriculum focuses on sound spectrographic analysis techniques and how they can be applied to biological research. We mainly use Raven, which is a sound analysis and visualization software tool developed at BRP, for instruction and analysis in this course. The standard fee is $1,300, but there is a discounted
