ABOUT THIS COURSE
This community analytics course is designed for students who have recently started their projects or researchers who are starting using the R ecosystem. During this three-day course, we will cover the basic concepts of multivariate analysis and their implementation in R. This course is a complement to the PR Statistic offering allowing also beginners and non-programmers to discover the statistical tools needed to analyze an ecological dataset in research, natural resource management or conservation context. This course is not geared toward any particular taxonomic group or ecological system.
We will cover diversity indices, distance measures and multivariate distance-based methods, clustering, classification, and ordination techniques. We will focus on the concept of the methods and their implementation on R using different R packages. We will use real-world examples to implement analyses, such as describing patterns along gradients of environmental or anthropogenic disturbances, quantifying the effects of continuous and discrete predictors, data mining. The course will consist of lectures, work on R code scripts, and exercises for participants.
