SDM course in the beautiful city of Evora, Portugal
This is to inform you that the 4th edition of the PhD/Postdoc course
“Species distributions models: concepts, methods, applications, and
challenges” is organised by Prof. Miguel Araùjo and Dr. Babak Naimi in
University of Evora, Portugal between 22th and 28th of May, 2017.
The course aims to introduce the fundamental concepts underpinning
ecological niche models (ENM), describing some of the most prominent
methods currently in use, and discussing the strengths and limitations of
these models for different applications. The course gives equal weight to
theory and application. The students will have the opportunity to learn how
to run ENM with the new R package, sdm, that is an object-oriented,
reproducible and extensible R platform for species distribution modelling (
http://www.biogeoinformatics.org/) that has been developed by the
organisers of the course.
