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
Climate Change in the Urban EnviromentSFU: Climate Change in the Urban Environment: Essential Steps to Enabling Resiliency. Climate resiliency decisions often require strategic actions and implementation directed by local level decision-making. This workshop will provide an overview of current knowledge regarding climate change and the steps to building and enabling community resiliency.Nov 08, 2018Vancouver BCPRD_SFU02
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
BC Protected Area Research Forum ConferenceBCPARF: The goal of the forum is not to conduct research itself but to facilitate research and its application to parks and protected areas management.
