Qaecologists presenting at the International Statistical Ecology Conference, Montpellier 2014

So it is going to be another quiet winter in the QAECO lab. A whole bunch of us will be migrating north to Europe and other warmer climes. For many the first staging post will be the south of France [sigh], for the International Statistical Ecology Conference in Montpellier to be held next week (1-4 of July). Here is a list of the keen qaecologists presenting their work during the conference.

Wednesday 2 July

Els Van Burm
The impact of data quantity on decision making using a Bayesian stochastic patch occupancy model.

William Morris
Decomposing correlated occurrence with a hierarchical Joint Species Distribution Model.

Peter Vesk
Historical data for ecological monitoring and management evaluation, some practical experiences.

Friday 4 July

Gerry Ryan

Joslin Moore
Accounting for imperfect detection when evaluating the effectiveness of invasive species control.

José Lahoz-Monfort
