Dear colleagues,

Transmitting Science is offering a new course that can be of your interest: Ecological Niche Modelling and Comparative Macroecology using ENMTools.

Instructors: Dan Warren (Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Center, Germany) and Neftalí Sillero (Centro de Investigação em Ciências Geo-Espaciais, Portugal)

Dates: January 14th-18th, 2018.

Place: Capellades, Barcelona (Spain).

In this workshop the instructors will review the basics of Ecological Niche Modelling, focusing on the pros and cons of each type of model.

They will be introduced to new aspects of the ENMTools R package that streamline the ENM process and implement new methods for model visualization and evaluation. Then they will move forward into comparative macroecology, learning how to compare different models and test hypotheses regarding patterns of niche evolution and the environmental significance of biogeographic boundaries. Finally, students will learn new age-overlap correlation functions that allow us to visualize and test patterns of range overlap, niche overlap, and species co-occurrence in the context of a phylogeny.

This workshop will be hands-on, with practical exercises and time for discussion of students´ case study and data.

Students are encouraged to bring their own data to analyse.
