1 day animal movement workshop at the ISEC conference 2018

July 1, 2018

one day workshop at the International Statistical Ecology Conference – from the webpage:

The study of animal movement has always been a key element in ecological science because it is inherently linked to critical processes that scale from individuals to populations and communities to ecosystems. Rapid improvements in biotelemetry data collection and processing technology have given rise to a variety of statistical methods for characterizing animal movement. This workshop provides an overview of the types of statistical models used to study individual-based animal movement based on telemetry data.

This workshop on animal movement modeling is intended for wildlife biologists, quantitative ecologists, and statisticians who seek a deeper understanding of modern animal movement models. In the workshop, we present a wide variety of modeling approaches using a consistent notation. We organize the models into groups based on how they treat the underlying spatio-temporal process of movement. The primary groups of models covered are: point process models, discrete-time models, and continuous-time models. We also highlight connections among approaches to facilitate a broader view of animal movement analysis and its associations with traditional spatial and temporal statistical modeling. The workshop will draw on examples and material from the recent textbook “Animal Movement: Statistical Models for Telemetry Data” written by the presenters.
