The Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental
Modelling (CREEM) is hosting two linked workshops in the summer of 2016
at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.
The first workshop (16-19 August) will run at an introductory level, and
will focus on distance sampling methods, largely described in the
standard reference book "Introduction to Distance Sampling." The
workshop will be a blend of theory and practice and participants will
learn how to use the program "Distance." Participants will gain a solid
grounding in both survey design and methods of analysis for distance
The advanced distance sampling workshop (22-25 August) will include
advanced treatment of analyses in which detectability on the transect
line is not assumed to be perfect (the so-called g(0) problem) and
spatial (or density surface) modelling. We will showcase a series of R
packages for performing standard as well as sophisticated analyses in R.
For all workshops, participants are encouraged to bring their own data
sets, and can expect to perform preliminary analyses of their data.
Participants can use our computers or bring their own laptops.
