12 - 16 July 2010

A joint University of Amsterdam, NLBIF, LifeWatch Summer Course on Geo-ecological Data Analysis.
The increasing availability of high quality occurrence and abundance data at the species level accompanied by many environmental data layers has boosted the developments in species distribution modelling (SDM). As a result, there are nowadays numerous data-driven modelling tools available for enhancing understanding of ecological systems or generating predictions, which has however not made life easier for most young researchers. This course aims at introducing the students to the fundamental research questions, to important model assumptions and to several basic data analysis steps. In addition, the most important techniques are introduced to make geo-ecological data accessible in a database and analyse it with appropriate modelling procedures.
