Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies periodically offers a short course in
the use of likelihood methods in ecology. This intensive, 1-week course
covers the concepts, theories, and application of likelihood methods as a
comprehensive framework for analysis of ecological data and for testing
alternate hypotheses in the context of model comparison. The course is
intended for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in ecology or
related fields. Class size is limited to ~16 students.
course, taught by Dr. Charles
Canham, includes lectures on likelihood principles, seminars on
applications in ecology, and discussion of recent literature. More than
half of the course is devoted to computer-based labs in which students
use the R software package to learn likelihood methods and modeling.
