Rachel McCrea and Emily Dennis attended Statistische Woche (Statistics Week) held in Hamburg and gave invited presentations in a Young Symposium session on statistical ecology. Emily presented “Recent developments for modelling butterfly abundance” and Rachel presented “Capture-recapture models in ecology: multistate developments.”
Congratulations to Ming Zhou who won the runner up prize for her poster at the Royal Statistical Society’s Conference held 7 to 10 September 2015 at Exeter University. Her poster was entitled Novel removal models for amphibian and reptile populations.
Rachel, Eleni, Ming, Anita, Byron and Diana attend the Royal Statistical Society Conference in Exeter.
On Tuesday evening Ming presented a poster on Novel removal models for amphibian and reptile populations. We are delighted that Ming won the runner-up prize for her poster.
n Wednesday afternoon Diana and Anita gave talks in the contributed session on ecology. Diana’s talk was on Parameter Redundancy in Ecological Integrated Population Models and Anita’s talk was on Detecting heterogeneity in capture-recapture models: diagnostic goodness-of-fit tests and score tests.
Later Wednesday afternoon Eleni and Rachel, along with Roland from St Andrews, gave invited talks in a session on Recent Advances in Statistical Ecology. This was part of the invited sessions organized by The Environmental Statistics Section of Royal Statistical Society. Eleni talked on Bayesian non-parametric population ecology models and Rachel talked on Integrated population model selection in ecology.
Wednesday evening Byron gave a talk on Multivariate methods and ecology as part of a special session celebrating the work of Wojtek Krzanowoski.
