Symposium: New Opportunities at the Interface between Ecology and Statistics

11-12 July 2013
The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

Ecologists and statisticians have much to gain from working together, and this two-day symposium is designed to provide precisely such an opportunity. This symposium has been designed as a collaborative forum for researchers with interests in ecology, statistics, or both. World leaders from ecology and statistics will be paired up to present their own perspectives on five topical issues, and round-table discussions will workshop opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration on these topics.

Sessions will be organised around five special topics, with a pair of speakers on each topic:

  • Presence-only and point pattern analysis (Jane Elith, Adrian Baddeley)
  • Maximum entropy estimation in ecology (Bill Shipley, Trevor Hastie)
  • Visualising multivariate data (Gerry Quinn, Shirley Pledger)
  • Mapping bioclimatic variables (Chris Daly, Noel Cressie)
  • Functional and phylogenetic diversity (Will Cornwell, Anne Chao)
