Stable Isotope Mixing Models using SIBER, SIAR, MixSIAR (SIMM05)
https://www.prstatistics.com/course/stable-isotope-mixing-models-using-r-simm05/
This course will be delivered by Dr Andrew Parnell and Dr Andrew Jackson
(authors of the SIBER, SIAR and MixSIAR packages) form the 10th - 14th June
2019 in Glasgow City Centre. Course overview: This course will cover the
concepts, technical background and use of stable isotope mixing models
(SIMMs) with a particular focus on running them in R and will suit anyone
using stable isotopes to study marine mammals. Recently SIMMs have become a
very popular tool for quantifying food webs and thus the diet of predators
and prey in an ecosystem. Starting with only basic understanding of
statistical models, we will cover the do’s and don’ts of using SIMMs with a
particular focus on the widely used package SIAR and the more advanced
MixSIAR. Participants will be taught some of the advanced features of these
packages, which will enable them to produce a richer class of output, and
are encouraged to bring their own data sets and problems to study during
the round-table discussions. Monday 10th – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30
Basic concepts. Module 1: Introduction; why use a SIMM? Module 2: An
introduction to bayesian statistics. Module 3: Differences between
regression models and SIMMs. Practical: Revision on using R to load data,
create plots and fit statistical models. Round table discussion:
Understanding the output from a Bayesian model. Tuesday 11th – Classes from
09:30 to 17:30 Understanding and using SIAR. Module 4: Do’s and Don’ts of
using SIAR. Module 5: The statistical model behind SIAR. Practical: Using
SIAR for real-world data sets; reporting output; creating richer summaries
and plots. Round table discussion: Issues when using simple SIMMs.
Wednesday 12th – Classes from 09:30 to 17:30 SIBER and MixSIAR. Module 6:
Creating and understanding Stable Isotope Bayesian Ellipses (SIBER). Module
7: What are the differences between SIAR and MixSIAR? Practical: Using
MixSIAR on real world data sets; benefits over SIAR. Round table
discussion: When to use which type of SIMM. Thursday 13th – Classes from
09:30 to 17:30 Advanced SIMMs. Module 8: Using MixSIAR for complex data
sets: time series and mixed effects models. Module 9: Source grouping: when
and how? Module 10: Building your own SIMM with JAGS. Practical: Running
advanced SIMMs with JAGS. Round table discussion: Bring your own data set.
Friday 14th – Classes from 09:30 to 16:00 Bring your own data set. Please
