Assessing the Probability of Species Occurrence and Detection with Occupancy Models Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015; 8AM-5PM Cost: $60 USD Maximum Enrollment: 25 Presented by the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate Biology http://thesnvb.org/annual-meeting-2015/ Instructors: Mike Adams and Tara Chestnut, USGS Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative (ARMI Program) In ecological research, it is often of interest to ask questions about the probability of species occurrence when detection is imperfect. For example, how does the probability that a pond is occupied by red-legged frogs relate to th
Instructors: Marc Kéry & Jérôme Guélat, Swiss Ornithological Institute Date: 9–11 February 2015 Venue: Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil Computers: Bring your own laptop with latest R, JAGS and WinBUGS or OpenBUGS Costs: 1000 Reais (400 US$) 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

MacKenzie, Proteus Wildlife Research Consultants Cost: US$800 until 1 October, US$850 thereafter In these courses participants will be instructed in methods for modeling patterns and dynamics of species occurrence with emphasis on accounting for imperfect detection, with computer exercises in PRESENCE and R. Important issues for study design will also be covered. Additional details and registrat
