STATISTICS FOR WILDLIFE PROFESSIONALS
Data collected by wildlife biologists often requires forms of analysis not covered in entry-level statistics courses. This advanced statistics course introduces students to techniques currently used by ecologists, and covers the components of experimental design that create effective research and monitoring programs. Students learn components that influence both the design-based and model-based inference of their work. Experimental design focused on impact assessment and monitoring will be emphasized. The course also emphasizes regression-based approaches to data analysis. Students learn to conduct and interpret results from regression analysis, as well as model selection approaches based on information-theoretic and Bayesian approaches.
