Congratulations to Guru, Byron and Martin. Their paper “Two Stage Bayesian Study Design for Species Occupancy Estimation” (JABES 19:278-291) has been selected as the 2014 winner of the competition for “Best Paper in JABES by an IBS Member”.
Diana, Eleni and Rachel gave a 3 day long workshop on occupancy modelling.
The workshop took place 13-15 of January at the University of Kent.
The 20 or so participants were exposed to the ideas behind basic and advanved occupancy models from classical and Bayesian perspectives.
There were theory and practical sessions, the latter covering R and Presence.
On the last day, participants discussed about their own projects and data with the SE@K group. All of the projects were interesting and some will undoubtedly lead to more collaborations in the future.
