Environmental Statistics section meeting: Integrated population modelling

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Sections and local group meeting reports

On 24th September, ecologists and statisticians got together for a meeting titled Integrated Population Modelling. It was a joint meeting of the  Environmental Statistics section of the Royal Statistical Society, the British and Irish region of the Biometric Society and the Computational Ecology Special Interest Group of the British Ecological Society.
 
The meeting started with a tutorial talk on integrated population modelling by Takis Besbeas (Athens University of Business and Economics, University of Kent). Then, over lunch, eight posters were presented, including both the theoretical and applied aspects of integrating different data sets.
 
In the afternoon, four speakers presented their work. Takis Besbeas gave another talk on recent developments in integrated population modelling; Fitsum Abadie (Centre D’Ecologie Fonctionnelle & Evolutive) talked on combining demographic and population count data to estimate immigration rate and the strength of density dependence; Jason Matthiopoulos (University of St Andrews) gave a talk about how state-space modelling reveals the proximate causes of harbour seal population declines; and finally, Allan Tucker (Brunel University) talked on dynamic probabilistic models for predicting regime shifts in fish populations. The meeting ended with a discussion, led by Byron Morgan (University of Kent).
