Period P1 - Université de Poitiers, FranceYear 1
UP-108Modelling & Statistics tools in ecology3 ECTSPeriod P1UP
Objectives:This course provides the statistical tools needed in the analysis of biological and ecological data. Univariates Aand multivatiates staistical test will be manipulated with real data using R software. An introduction to ecological and biological modelling highlights an integrated approach, simplified, od complex systems in order to identify key parameters explaining its evolution. Different examples are used, from determinism and analytical models to realistic and stochastic simulation.

Outcomes:The student will be able to choose the statistical analysis appropriated with his/her set of data and to conduce the parametrization of the analysis. The student will be able to interprete the results of test in order to build robust conclusion and hypothesis. In a reverse way, the student will be able to design the experimental protocole and identify the variable tested according the statistical analysis programmed.
