I am looking for some guidance on producing density and population estimates from a point count dataset for about a dozen grassland bird species while linking relationships to a suite of habitat data. I had intended to use package 'detect', adapting previously used code, but in light of a recent paper by Solymos et al. 2018, it does not seem appropriate for these data, as all species have fewer than the 1000 detection sample size suggested by Solymos. So I have been struggling to determine whether using a function in the package 'unmarked' is appropriate or if I should be looking to progr
The Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM) is hosting two linked workshops in the summer of 2013 in our purpose-built facilities at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. The aim of these workshops is to train participants in the latest methods for design and analysis of distance sampling surveys, including line and point transects. The workshops are taught by leading researchers in the field, using industry-standard software. The first workshop (20-23 August) will run at an introductory level, and will focus on distance sampling methods, largely described
The newly renamed Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation, a partnership between George Mason University and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), is proud to announce their Spring/Summer 2013 course schedule. The School is now offering more courses than ever before, in a wide range of topics, all focused on training in different aspects of biodiversity conservation, from effective conservation leadership, to technical tools in statistics and field sampling. All courses are currently either 1 or 2-week intensive residential courses and they will now be held in a brand-new, su
