HMSC workshop held at University of Oulu

Professor Otso Ovaskainen spent a day at the University of Oulu teaching HMSC in practice using the R-package Hmsc.

The course participants learned how to integrate data on species occurrences (or abundances) with data on environmental conditions, and optionally on species traits, phylogenetic relationships, and the spatio-temporal context of the study, in order to address topical questions on community ecology, such as the roles of biotic and abiotic filtering in shaping community assembly.
