Fancy Stats Lead to Better Estimates of Killer Whale Habitat Use

By |2015-06-18T00:44:55+00:00June 18th, 2015|Categories: SMRUC North America, Stats|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Our University of St. Andrews colleagues at SMRU and CREEM are making use of some fancy stats to determine better estimates of Southern Resident killer whale (SRKW) habitat use in the Pacific Northwest. Assessing and mapping the habitat use of this population is tricky business as a result of the complex topography of the area, which [...]

The 'Han Solo is a Badass' method to explaining Bayesian statistics:

By |2015-04-20T05:58:26+00:00April 20th, 2015|Categories: PCoD, Stats|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Statistics are a tricky bunch. They’re often hard to understand, hard to implement and hard to interpret. That’s why when someone finds a way to explain statistics in possibly the most fun way possible (especially if you were born in the 70’s or 80’s), we need to post about it. […]
