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 relevant to researchers in the filed of seabird 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}
