Descriptions provided by Instructors:

Workshop 1 & 5: 

Title: Introduction to Statistical Analysis and Machine Learning in R.

Instructor: Dan Schmutz, M.S., Chief EnvironmentalScientist, Greenman-Pedersen, Inc.

Description:

This full day workshop will provide a gentle introduction to the somewhat arcane world of R. This free,

open source system for statistical computation and graphics has become the de facto standard for

ecologists with more than half of published scientific papers now using the software. R allows precise

documentation of steps taken in data processing in order to provide reproducible results in alignment

with the Open Science movement. Graphical user interfaces and integrated development environments

now make R much more user friendly for beginners (i.e., more point-and-click and less command line).

Users have contributed over 13,000 packages to R, greatly extending its capabilities. Bring your laptop, if

possible, as the workshop will include a hands-on portion.

 

Some topics we will touch on:

Overview of R Capabilities

Installing R and R Studio

Project Organization

Fun with Data: Importing, Cleaning, Manipulating, Summarizing

Graphics

Spatial Data and Mapping

Statistical Analysis

Scripting

Machine Learning

 

Workshop 7

Title: Invasive Plant Identification and Management.

Instructor: Dr. Lyn Gettys, Assistant Professor – Aquatic and Wetland Plant Science, University of Florida Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center

Description: Aquatic plant identification, biology, ecology, and control methods
