Generalized Linear Models for Evolutionary Ecologists

Date: 20 November 2017 - 24 November 2017
Location: Saint-Pierre-Lès-Nemours, France

The staple of data in evolutionary ecology consist of counts, proportions and durations. Fitness, a crucial quantity in evolutionary biology, is either estimated by counting offspring or involves population dynamical modelling depending on estimates obtained with generalized linear models (GLM) and mixed models (LMM and GLMM).

We invite you to participate in our course on GLM's for evolutionary ecology. Previous incarnations of this course were taught at Leiden University, the Groningen Research School Ecology and Evolution, TGAC Norwich and at CEREEP.

Goal: To become familiar with statistical modelling and hypothesis testing using GLM and mixed models (GLMM). To be able to represent and analyse your own life history data or other types of data occurring in evolutionary ecology, using R.

Audience: The course is intended for PhD students, but we allow the participation of Msc students and post-docs. The number of participants is limited to 20 and places are filled on a first come basis.
