Dear all,

registration is now open for the 2nd edition of the Physalia course "Paleobiology in R".


Dates: (online) February 13th-17th


This course will provide a complete guide to basic analytical techniques for examining macroevolutionary and biodiversity patterns using online databases (primarily The Paleobiology Database), from instruction on data collection, handling, and curation, to plotting and publishing results. First, we will cover the theory behind the structure of the fossil record and how paleodiversity information is generated and inherently biased by geological and anthropogenic processes. We will discuss how to outline these processes, recognise the biases, incorporate these information in our datasets, convert the data into analysable formats, and visualise them. Then, we will expand on this foundation by talking about modelling techniques used in analytical paleobiology, going through the different options for analytical approaches and linking them with hypothesis testing.


Here is the complete list of our courses and Workshops: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/
