Quantitative methods in ecology and evolution

It is empowering to know how to analyze your own data
—Don Ludwig (2009), Emeritus Prof. and former S+ instructor

Biology 501 is a graduate course on quantitative methods for data analysis in ecology and evolution. The format is a mixture of lectures/discussions on methodological topics and practical workshops using the R package. Students are assumed to have taken an introductory undergraduate statistics course at some point in their careers. We will begin at a fairly basic level using a general linear model approach.

Instructor: Dolph Schluter (email; website; office: Biodiv. 218)

Lectures (Tuesdays 1-3 pm) and workshops (Thursdays 1-3 pm) are held in Beaty Biodiversity Centre Room 224.
