CMIAE: Occupancy ModellingCMIAE: The Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology presents, Occupancy Modelling Workshop. The presence or absence of a species in a set of units (polygons, landscape units, territories, etc.) is a fundamental concept in many ecological studies (e.g. resource selection modelling, biodiversity, range). Visits to sampled units can results in a positive detection of a species or a non-detection of the species in that unit. However, a species may not always be detected if present which results in “false negatives”. If the issue of detectablity is not accounted for, estimates that rely on the level of occupancy can be misleading. This workshop covers methods for modelling species occurrence while accounting for potential false negatives.Oct 23, 2018Revelstoke BCPRD_CMI02

The Circular Economy—A Pathway to a Sustainable OrganizationSFU: The circular economy is seen by many in the sustainability field as a practical solution to the planet's finite resources, to the transition to a low carbon economy, and an alternative to a traditional linear economy (i.e., make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of their use. It is also a route to creating socially inclusive jobs and a fair transition for all.Nov 29, 2018Vancouver BCPRD_SFU03
