Here is a page of papers we read or plan to read as part of the CREEM(ish) spatial modelling reading group.

Future meetings

Next meeting will be at Thursday 13 September 10-11am in the boardroom at the Observatory. We’ll be reading:

Linking resource selection and step selection models for habitat preferences in animals

Proposed by Andy Seaton.

Potential future papers
