Ecological Forecasting Initiative's data analysis webinar series

EFI & the ESA Statistical Ecology Section are hosting this virtual seminar series that demonstrates a variety of quantitative methods applied within Ecology & Environmental Science in R. 

Online Event
3 Oct 2022 - this event is in the past.
12:00 pm ~ 1:30 pm America/New_York

Speakers spend the first part of the webinar presenting a project where they used the method, followed by sharing R code or packages related used for the statistical method. Presenters walk through the code, taking time to describe common pitfalls or stumbling blocks for performing the method and visualizing results. R code is available on this GitHub repository. Recordings from the webinars are available in the EFI YouTube Statistical Methods Webinar Series Playlist. Attendees are expected to be proficient in R.
