Event description

Description

The BES Macro Special Interest Group are hosting a course on species distribution modelling (SDM) at the University of Nottingham. This event will introduce SDM theory and practice and expose researchers to recent developments in the field.

The course will run over three days (7th-9th May) and will include an introductory workshop and a set of practical sessions from leaders in the field where participants will have the opportunity to carry out analyses on a range of different SDMs. The event will also stimulate discussion about appropriate and inappropriate use of SDMs.

This course is suitable for both non-experienced and experienced users of SDMs. No previous knowledge of SDMs is required. A basic knowledge of R is required. If you don't know any R, don't worry - get in touch and we can point you toward useful online resources to get you up to speed before the course starts.
