Course description

Regression analysis is one of the most commonly used methods in ecology. Analyses range from the very simple (a single response vs a single predictor) to the very complex (hundreds of predictors). This course reviewed the use of regression methods using modern statistical software (JMP). As well, regression methods have been extended to try and predict categorical responses (e.g. predicting live vs dead using logistic regression) and predicting counts (e.g. stem counts in forest surveys as a function of covariates). An introduction to generalized linear modelling using these more advanced methods was given.
