Seminar: Model choice in phylogenetic biogeography

12:00pm - 1:00pm, OML 40

SBSC Seminar

12:00pm - 1:00pm, OML 400

Ecology has to be observed in the real world, which does not always cooperate to give us nice neat data. For statisticians this is a good thing, because it means we can work with models more interesting than a classical ANOVA. I will explain how we can use moderns statistical ideas, hierarchical models, state space model...
