Vernon Visser will be running a workshop on behalf of SANBI on species distribution modelling (SDM) in R (with a focus on marine environments).
This year I was lucky to be awarded some funding under a postdoctoral exchange scheme, hosted by the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology Scotland (MASTS). Thanks to this funding, I was able to carry out research visits to two Scottish institutions, the Universities of St Andrews and Glasgow, between June and August 2015.
The 2015 SEEC student symposium was held at the UCT Research Office at Cormack House in Mowbray on Friday 16 October, and was well attended by postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, and a few visitors.
SEEC is hosting Michael Schaub & Marc Ke’ry of the Swiss Ornithological Institute, and Sarah J. Converse of the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center for a week-long course on Bayesian integrated population modelling (IPM) using BUGS and JAGS.
