Thank you to all who attended the International Statistical Ecology Conference 2016. Over 300 experts from around the world convened in Seattle to present research findings and discuss issues of interest to ecological statisticians and biologists.
Contributed talk and poster sessions will cover many areas of interest to statistical ecologists and biologists, including (but not limited to) abundance estimation, animal movement, big data, biodiversity, capture-recapture, citizen science, community dynamics, disease ecology, distance sampling, epidemiology, evolutionary ecology, fisheries, individual-based models, integrated population models, metapopulation dynamics, multispecies models, occupancy models, population dynamics, spatial ecology, species distribution models, and survey design.
Sunday 26 June
– Spatially-explicit capture-recapture (David Borchers)
– Bayesian model selection and decision theory for ecologists (Mevin Hooten)
Monday 27 June
– Analysis of occupancy data using hidden Markov models and E-SURGE (Olivier Gimenez, Rémi Choquet, & Roger Pradel)
– Flexible programming with BUGS models: Using NIMBLE for MCMC and beyond (Perry de Valpine)
– Spatial statistical models for stream networks (Jay Ver Hoef & Erin Peterson)
