About: In association with the annual conference of the Association for Tropical Biology & Conservation, Asia-Pacific Chapter (March18-22 2013), we are running two courses. The Basic course is targeted at post-graduate level participants who have received only very basic training in statistics. It will introduce basic concepts in experimental design and sampling and how to analyse data, including non-parametric methods, ANOVA, regression, and GLMs. The Advanced course assumes participants are familiar with these basic methods and will introduce maximum likelihood approaches, more advance GLMs, Bayesian and multivariate methods. Please see the course outlines given below. Practicals for both courses will be conducted in R – a free open-source statistical computing program – and will provide an introduction to its use. Participants are required to bring their own laptop computers.
