PhD courses at Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity

R for Macroecology and global change studies

This course introduces R, with a focus on aspects of the language that are relevant in the analysis of large spatial datasets. The course assumes no or little prior knowledge of R but will move quickly through introductory topics such as defining functions, plotting and basic statistical tests. With this foundation, we will then introduce more advanced topics related directly to macroecological and biogeographical studies beginning with handling and manipulating vector- and raster-type data. We will then introduce two widely-used methods in spatial macroecology and global change studies – species distribution modeling and spatial regression methods. 

Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity journal club

The Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity journal club for PhD students and Post Docs focuses on the critique of research articles in the subjects of ecological statistics, biogeography, macroecology, functional ecology, land-scape ecology and paleo-ecology. The goal is to improve the understanding of research design, statistics, current research trends and critical appraisal of published research.
