Intro to Biostatistics provides an entry level statistics class for Wildlife Biology undergraduates in the Davidson Honors College. I teach this class in Autumn semesters in odd-numbered years.
Conservation of Wildlife Populations explores the application of population ecology principles and theory to the conservation and management of wildlife populations. I teach this course during Spring semesters annually.
Estimation of Demographic Parameters examines the theory and application of survival and abundance estimation. Statistical methods focus largely on applications with marked animals. Taught Autumn semesters in even years.
Integrated population modeling examines methods for bringing multiple data sources together for improved inference in population dynamics. The course focues largely on Bayesian state-space methods. I teach this course in Autumn semesters of odd years.
Statistical applications in Wildlife Biology explores statistical problems encountered by wildlife biology and ecology graduate students. Students will bring statistical problems of interest to class where we will explore potential analysis options, assumptions, pitfalls and alternatives to solve the problem as a group. Taught Spring semesters annually.
