DISTANCE SAMPLING WORKSHOP / NORTH AMERICA, September 14-17, 2008, Marconi Conference Center, Marshall, California

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



This fall, PRBO Conservation Science will host an Introductory Level Distance Sampling Workshop in scenic coastal California, about an hour north of San Francisco.  This will be the first workshop offered by the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling in North America in over 2 years.



The workshop instructors will be Drs. Steve Buckland, Len Thomas, and Tiago Marques. Over 3.5 days, we will focus on "conventional" distance sampling methods, as described in the standard reference book Introduction to Distance Sampling (book will be provided).  The workshop will be a blend of theory and practice and participants will learn how to use the program Distance.



Participants are encouraged to bring their own data sets, and can expect to do some preliminary analyses.  The instructors will discuss the application of distance-based analysis to a variety of taxa (terrestrial and marine) and survey methods (point counts and line transects).



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently offering a 10% early bird discount on the cost of the workshop.

In order to  make this workshop happen we need 25 registered participants by June 30, 2008. If you are interested in attending, but cannot make this deadline, please contact Mark Herzog at  mherzog at prbo.org<mailto:mherzog at prbo.org> or 707-781-2555 x308
