En este seminario se discutirán distintas aproximaciones metodológicas (Smith et al. 2018) para intentar mejorar nuestras estimaciones de nicho ecológico teniendo en cuenta la posible divergencia intraespecífica o adaptación local de las poblaciones, …
Earlier this year a few colleagues (Ignasi Bartomeus, Sara Varela, Antonio J. Pérez-Luque, and myself) created a new working group on Ecoinformatics within the Spanish Terrestrial Ecology Association (AEET). Our main goals are to promote knowledge and training and exchange experiences on all aspects of ecoinformatics, including data management, statistical modelling, programming, etc.
Reproducibility is a hot topic in science nowadays (e.g. see this Nature special). Some argue that we are in the middle of a ‘reproducibility crisis’, and thus scientists are being strongly encouraged to increase the reproducibility of their research.
As a side product (or trailer) of our paper on reproducible science, we made a video promoting reproducible workflows. Particularly, showing how using Git and Rmarkdown make your research and scientific collaboration way much easier and better, compared to a typical (non-reproducible) workflow involving Excel, Word, some figure production software, and a lot of manual steps.
