Also in May, Amy Whitehead demonstrates how to create a presence-absence raster from point data in the statistical programming language R, Chris Jones introduces us to the birds of Albert Park and Freya Thomas lets us know all the things she has been up to with her PhD since November. Finally QAECO PhD student Chris Hallam has a great piece on his blog about quantifying biodiversity, offsets and making development decisions.
