Summer School in Ecological Data Analysis  EcoDAR2017
Topics that will be covered in the Summer School include:
Topic 1: Introduction to R Software and Programming Language with Practicals.
Topic 2: Classic Statistical Methods (e.g. Hypothesis Testing, , Linear Regression) with Practicals.
Topic 3: Advanced Statistical Methods (e.g. Multivariate Data Analysis, GAMs, GLMMs, Mixed Effects Models, NonLinear Models) with Practicals.
Topics 4: Casestudies in Ecology.
