2020 Lamberson Ecology Lecture Series - March 12

February 21, 2020

CNRS Faculty, Staff and Students ~ 

Please join us in welcoming distinguished guest speaker Dr. Trent McDonald for the two-part Lamberson Ecology Lecture Series on Thursday, March 12.  Dr. McDonald is a Senior Biometrician at Western Ecosystems Technology Inc. and specializes in the application of capture-recapture analyses, habitat selection analyses, linear models, before-after-control-impact studies, computer intensive statistical models , finite population surveys, and R programming. Dr. McDonald has published over 85 papers on a wide range of statistical and biological topics. 

The afternoon technical presentation, Advances in Spatially Balanced Sampling: The HIP and BAS Methods will be held in BSS 166, 4PM. Dr. McDonald will introduce environmental sampling design by describing three study components: the spatial design ("where" samples are located), the temporal design ("when" sample sites are visited) and the site design ("what" is measured at sample sites and how). 

The evening, general presentation, Wind Power and Wildlife: How We Study Mortalities, What We Know, and Where We are Going will be held in SciB 135, 6:30 PM. The talk is about the study of bird and bat mortality at wind power generation facilities, what has been learned about wind fatalities over the course of three decades, and where research in wind and wildlife interactions is going over the next decade.

We hope you will join us. Please see the attached flier for additional detail.
