Spring School: Habitat distribution models and their applications in ecology, evolutionary ecology and conservation

Species distribution models have become the tools of choice to investigate various questions in ecology, such as the main correlates of species ranges, potential impacts of environmental change on biodiversity, the macroevolution of ecological niches, or the potential spread of invasive species in an adventive range.

The Spring School will consist of lectures on theory and specific examples demonstrating different fields where SDMs have been used and applied successfully (climate change, community ecology, niche evolution, invasive spread). The exercises (all carried out in R) will be related to topics such as: invasive species modelling, climate-change induced migrations, niche evolution and conservation planning, and will include elements such as designing stratified sampling schemes, GIS analyses and point/raster overlay.

 

Fees: 800 €, including registration, accommodations, all meals and breaks
Venue: At the middle of French Alps mountains

Participants will be limited to 30. Every attendee should have a good knowledge of R and associated packages necessary for the school (e.g. raster, BIOMOD, presence-absence). Applications (incl. CV and motivation) should be sent to wilfried.thuiller@ujf-grenoble.fr no later than 31 January 2012
