Do you want to learn how to use occurrence data and available software to address questions in ecology and evolutionary biology but haven’t had a chance to take a course and are overwhelmed by the options for self-teaching? Would you like to incorporate this sort of research into your classes but don’t have time to create the materials and examples? If either of these applies, then join the BiotaPhy Project for an upcoming series of 10 webinars designed to take you from biological question to data acquisition and cleaning to analysis and interpretation! BiotaPhy is a collaboration among iDigBio, the Open Tree of Life, and Lifemapper projects and personnel.
We have converted our popular summer workshop into a webinar series; see below for topics. Webinars will be held Wednesdays at 12:30 pm Eastern time, beginning September 21. All webinars will be recorded and made available, so you won’t get behind if you need to miss a session. The schedule is:
Webinar 0: Terms, Concepts, Data Formats – A Tutorial for Background
Available online at the registration page [coming soon!]
Webinar 1: Introduction: Scope and Research Potential for Multidisciplinary Biodiversity Modeling and Analysis
Webinar 2: Resolving Nomenclature: Making Appropriate Taxonomic Choices
Webinar 3: Clean Your Dirty Data
Webinar 4: Georeferencing with GEOLocate
Webinar 5: Big Data Munging (a.k.a Splitting and Merging Occurrence Data by Taxa from Multiple Sources)
Webinar 6: Species Distribution Modeling 1
Webinar 7: Species Distribution Modeling 2
Webinar 8: Introducing Presence-Absence Matrices for Large Scale Analyses
Webinar 9: Phylogenetic Diversity: Integrating Phylogenies with Species and Biogeographic Data
Webinar 10: Hypothesis Testing and Randomization
