Statistical courses with Pierre Legendre
July 18 and 19, 2020, Vladivostok (Russia)

The IAVS Ecoinformatics working group is organizing two statistical courses taught by Pierre Legendre (University of Montreal, Canada) during the two days before the Annual IAVS Symposium, with the following topics:


An overview of ordination methods

Ordination methods for community composition data
Transformations for ordination of species data
Algebra of Principal Component, Correspondence and Coordinate Analyses


Spatial eigenfunction modelling

Origin of spatial structures
Spatial eigenfunction methods
Test of space-time interaction

The first-day course is an introduction to ecological ordination methods, whereas the second-day course will present advanced spatial modelling methods. On each day, the formal lectures will be followed by practical exercises using the R statistical language. Students will need their own computers with R already installed.

Registration to the course is free for participants in the symposium and should be made before 30 March 2020 (same deadline for abstract submissions to the IAVS symposium), indicating interest to attend the first, second or both days. Please note that the number of participants is limited to 80 (priority will be given to early registrants).
