Course webpage: http://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/stats/multi-ecol-evol-in-r/

Instructors: Dr. Dean Adams (Iowa State University, USA) and Dr. Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou (Centro de Investigação em Biodiversidade e Recursos Genéticos (CIBIO), Portugal). This course is directed towards PhD students and researchers interested in exploring the potential of R language for multivariate analyses in ecology and evolution. The course will provide a general presentation of major statistical tools for multivariate analyses, including exploratory methods, multivariate GLM, methods for controlling for evolutionary and ecological non-independence, model selection and analysis of dispersion.

The course will include a morning and an afternoon session. During the morning session, the instructors will discuss major themes in ecology and evolution and associate them to the statistical tools available for exploring specific scientific questions. The afternoon session will begin with a short (1h) demonstration of R code based on a worked, biological example and followed by practical training by the participants. At the end of the course, participants will each give a presentation on their research system, potentially including some analyses carried out during the course, or ideas of how they might incorporate the knowledge acquired during the course to their research.

This course will be held in the Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain) and is co-organized by Transmitting Science and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Place are limited and will be covered by strict registration order.
