WORKSHOP ON CAPTURE-RECAPTURE ANALYSIS 2017

27 Nov. - 1 Dec. 2017, Mallorca, SPAIN

The introductory course aims to introduce students, researchers and environmental managers to the theory and practical aspects of the analysis of capture-mark-recapture and –recovery data to estimate survival, recruitment and dispersal probabilities. The course is based on theoretical classes as well as practical sessions with real and simulated data.

Why another Capture-Mark-Recapture course?
The analysis of individual-based data is rapidly expanding in ecological studies. Statisticians and population ecologists are working together adapting the analytical framework to answer finer ecological questions. We believe there is a need for an introductory course on capture-mark-recapture techniques aimed to those PhD students, postdocs, researchers and environmental managers willing to approach this constantly evolving field. No previous knowledge on capture-mark-recapture or capture-mark-recovery analyses is necessary.

What is this course?
The course aims to introduce students, researchers and environmental managers to the theory and practical aspects of the analysis of capture-mark-recapture and –recovery data to estimate survival, recruitment and dispersal probabilities.

Who is organizing this course?

The course is organized by the Population Ecology Group of the IMEDEA (http://imedea.uib-csic.es/bc/ecopob/).

Lectures will be given by Dr. G. Tavecchia, Prof. D. Oro, Dr. M.Genovart and Dr. A. Sanz, researchers at PEG. Invited researchers sometimes help in teaching as well as practical classes.



When and where?

The course will be held in Esporles (Mallorca, Spain)

at the IMEDEA (CSIC – UIB, http://www.imedea.uib.es/)

from the 27th of November to the 1st of December 2017.

The closest (and only) airport on Mallorca island is outside the city of Palma. There are several companies offering low-cost flights to Mallorca from nearly every European capital.

Esporles is a village at c. 14 km North of Palma city. There are regular buses between Palma and Esporles (c. 35min journey, about 3.5 € return). You can easily find an accommodation in Palma, stay in one of the three hotels in Esporles or even rent a small flat. We will send you more detailed information if you decide to come. Consider that the course will begin at 14h30 on Monday and will end at 14h30 on Friday so that you might be able to fly during working days.
