  2. Overview: This training program targets students with interest in wildlife handling, zoology, or veterinary science. Students will participate in annual capture and release programs focused on nonhuman primates, bats, birds, and small to medium size terrestrial mammals (rodents, marsupials, armadillos, tayras) in southeastern Peru. Participants will work alongside several wildlife biologists and veterinarians obtaining opportunities to handle a variety of mammalian and avian species, gaining valuable knowledge of their biology, learning to record morphometrics, collecting and processing a vari

Instructors: Dr. Daniele Silvestro (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) and Tobias Hofmann (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) Course overview Bayesian methods have become standard practice in several fields, (e.g. phylogenetic inference, evolutionary (paleo)biology, genomics), yet understanding how this Bayesian machinery works is not always trivial. The instructor will outline the relevant concepts and basic theory, but the focus
  5. WINTER COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT (Jan. 4-24, 2019) TROPICAL RAINFOREST CANOPY ACCESS TECHNIQUES (CAT W-19) COURSE LOCATION: Bocas del Toro Biological Station, Boca del Drago, Isla Colon, Republic of Panama.

  7. Introductory and advanced occupancy modeling courses | Oct. 2018, VA, USA Beginner/intermediate course: 15-19 October 2018 Advanced course: 22-26 October 2018 Occupancy models are a suite of methods that have been developed for examining the patterns and dynamics of species occurrence (e.g., presence/absence) across a region of interest, particularly while account for the imperfect detection of species. They may be used in a wide range of ecological applications, from simply providing a monitoring metric, to investigating relationships between the distribution of a species with env
  8. Transmitting Science is offering a new course: “Introduction to Photogrammetry and Laser Scan”, which will be held in Barcelona province from May 21st to 25th, 2018.

  9. Humboldt State University will conduct our sixth annual summer short course on individual-based (agent-based) modeling, July 18-22, 2016. The course is intended primarily for university faculty interested in teaching their own modeling courses, but we also encourage participants interested mainly in research applications. The course will be based on the textbook "Agent-based and Individual-based Modeling: A Practical Introduction" by Railsback and Grimm: http://www.railsback-grimm-abm-book.com/ and led by Steve Railsback, Volker Grimm, and Steve Lytinen. The course's main goal will be to intr
  10. Modelling Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence Darryl I. MacKenzie Date: 24-28 August 2015 Venue: University of Guelph, Guelph Course Fee: CAD$800 before 1 Aug; CAD$850 thereafter 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 modelling, resource selection probability functions, as a monitoring metric, metapopulation studies, biodiversity and species co-occurrence). An important sampling issue, however, is that a species may not always be detected when pres
  11. Multivariate Analysis for Community Ecologists using PC-ORD 2.5-day WORKSHOP (must attend in person) will be held Tuesday-Thursday 11-13 August 2015 (~08:30-16:30) at The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Edmonton, AB, Canada More information about this and future courses can be found at: http://ecosystems.psu.edu/research/labs/silviculture/pc-ord To receive registration instructions, ask specific questions, or be placed on a mailing list for future course announcements, contact Jeri Peck at Penn State: peckj@psu.edu
