nstitute for Biodiversity conservation and Training is pleased to announce workshop on Ensemble Species Distribution modelling with R. The workshop will be held on 2 and 3 November 2019. This course will be delivered online. In this course, the participants will be introduced to fundamentals of Species Distribution modelling, GIS Operations and hands-on-training with R.
What is Ensemble Species Distribution modelll?
Species distribution modelling (SDM) using several techniques or multiple algorithms now a days are widely used technique. The ensemble models are widely used method for pressing environmental issues such as biodiversity conservation (Franklin 2010), invasives risk assesment (Ficetola 2007), climatic change impact on species distribution (Kearner 2010) and Zoonotic diseases (Gonzalez 2010). Species distribution models used in several research areas in conservation biology, ecology and evolution. The SDM is also known as Ecological Niche modelling, Envrionmental niche modelling, habitat modelling or climatic envelop modelling. In short, to overcome the limitations of several algorithms scientists can model species distributions using several alogorithms and combine it.
