Recursos Genéticos (CIBIO), Portugal).
This course is directed towards PhD students and research= ers
interested in exploring the potential of R language for multivariate
an= alyses in ecology and evolution. The course will provide a general
presenta= tion of major statistical tools for multivariate analyses,
including explor= atory methods, multivariate GLM, methods for
controlling for evolutionary a= nd ecological non-independence, model
selection and analysis of dispersion.=
The course will include a morning and an afternoon session. During t=
he morning session, the instructors will discuss major themes in
ecology an= d evolution and associate them to the statistical tools
available for explo= ring specific scientific questions. The afternoon
session will begin with a= short (1h) demonstration of R code based on
a worked, biological example a= nd followed by practical training by
the participants. At the end of the co= urse, participants will each
give a presentation on their research system, = potentially including
some analyses carried out during the course, or ideas= of how they
might incorporate the knowledge acquired during the course to = their
