Harvard Forest hosting a workshop for faculty and graduate students

Harvard Forest recently hosted a 5-day workshop for faculty and graduate students interested in learning to work with generalized linear mixed models, a statistical approach for estimating different kinds of variation in ecological processes. 

Workshop participants included eight university professors--from the University of Massachusetts, Colby College, Clayton State University, University of South Carolina, University of Minnesota, Wilkes-Barre University and Adam Mickiewiscz University (in Poland)--and six Ph.D. students, from Harvard University, University of Massachusetts, University of Pittsburgh, University of Washington, and University of Bergen (in Norway). 

Many of the participants were studying effects of ungulate browsing, small mammal granivory, and the impacts of climate factors such as temperature and light on forest establishment.  The workshop was led by Harvard Forest ecologist Elizabeth Crone, with help from postdoctoral researchers Josh Rapp and Leone Brown.
