2nd NNEXT Training School
Modelling landscape invasion by non-native trees: challenges and applications
Objective of Training School
"Modelling landscape invasion by non-native trees: challenges and applications"
The main objective of this training school was to provide following skills
• Invasion ecology
• different modelling techniques
- Bayesian modelling
- Habitat Suitability modelling
- Agent based modelling
- Stochastic dynamic modelling
- Multivariate modelling
• Introduction to R software and statistical programming
• Spatial analyses of ecological and environmental data
• Species mapping using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
The intended audience for this course were students or researchers at early stage of their career. They should be interested in forest ecology and species distribution modelling and were expected to have limited experience with programming and statistics. This course was also interesting for those with a strong background in modelling who wanted to broaden their horizon in modelling tools.
The application process is closed.
