We organised a 2-day workshop on the metrics of longevity used in human and animal demography. The idea is to explore potential bridges between the two fields. Next meeting in April.
Frederic Gosselin, Etienne Rivot and I organised a 2-day workshop on issues in fitting hierarchical models in ecology. I gave a talk on “Local minima and multistate capture-recapture models”, slides and R code available on GitHub.
As part of the GdR EcoStat and our evolutionary demography group, we had a stimulating workshop on the quantification of individual heterogeneity in survival of wild populations using an approach recently developed by Hal Caswell.
