Advancing in statistical modelling for evolutionary biologists and
ecologists using R (ADVR08)

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/advancing-statistical-modelling-using-r-advr08/

This course will be delivered by Dr. Luc Bussiere from the 21st - 25th
January 2019 in Glasgow City Centre

Course Overview:
This course will provide an introduction to working with real-life data
typical of those encountered in the field of biology and ecology making it
highly relvant to resesartchers in the filed of marine mammal ecology. This
five day course will consist of series of modules (each lasting roughly
half a day) covering model selection and simplification, generalised linear
models, mixed effects models, and non-linear models. Along the way you will
gain in depth experience in data ‘wrangling’, data and model visualisation
and plotting, as well as exploring and understanding model diagnostics.
Classes will comprises of a mixture of lectures and practicals designed to
either build required skills for future modules or to perform a family of
analyses that is frequently encountered in the biological literature.

Course Programme
Monday 21st – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30
Course introduction; techniques for data manipulation, aggregation, and
visualisation; introduction to linear regression. Packages: {tidyr},
{dplyr}, {ggplot2}

Tuesday 22nd – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30
Linear models (diagnostics, collinearity, scaling, plotting fitted values);
fitting and interpreting interaction terms; model selection and
simplication; general linear models and ANCOVA.
Packages: {stats}, {car}

Wednesday 23rd – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30
Generalized linear models (logistic and Poisson regression); predicting
using model objects and visualizing model fits. Packages: {broom},
{visreg}, {ggplot2}

Thursday 24th – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30
Mixed effects models in theory and practice; visualising fixed and random
effects.
Packages: {lme4}, {broom}, {ggplot2}, {sjPlot}

Friday 85th – Classes from 09:30 to 16:00
Fitting nonlinear functions (polynomial & mechanistic models); brief
introduction to more advanced topics & combining methods (e.g., generalised
linear mixed effects, nonlinear mixed effects, and zero-inflated and
zero-altered models). Packages: {nlsTools}
