Purpose

This virtual course is offered as a 3-part series and participants may choose to register for individual days or for the entire 3-day course. Day 1 (basic) will consist of an overview of camera trapping with information pertaining to camera trapping objectives, camera deployment and maintenance, and data entry and management with Camelot. Day 2 (intermediate) will introduce data exploration with R, statistical analysis using GLMMs, and occupancy models. Day 3 (advanced) will cover advanced statistical analysis using spatial capture-recapture models for marked and partially-marked populations. For day 2, participants should have prior experience with linear models and generalized linear models. For day 3, participants should have experience with occupancy models and mark-recapture analysis. Days 2 and 3 also assume participants feel comfortable working in R. 

Please note: An option is available within the registration link to request a passcode protected recording that can be accessed for 1 week following each day-long session for those that cannot attend the live event. 

Who Will Benefit?

Students and research professionals interested in wildlife camera trapping study design, data management, and data analysis.

Instructors

Dr. James Johnson is an Outreach Program Assistant with the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. His research while at the Warnell School focused on developing a survey method for estimating white-tailed deer population parameters using camera traps.

Dr. Richard Chandler is an Associate Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Management. His research focuses on wildlife population dynamics and wildlife conservation. Dr. Chandler is a co-author of the book Spatial Capture-Recapture and a developer of several R packages, including ‘unmarked’.  

Dr. Michel Kohl is a Wildlife Management and Extension faculty in the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. His work primarily focuses on the application of GPS technology to address management and conservation questions that pertain to wildlife distributions.
