SQuiD - Mixed Modelling Workshop 2016

Photo: T.H. Ringsby3. - 7. October 2016 a group of PhD students, researchers and invited speakers gathered for a PhD course and CBD workshop at the remote field station Sletvik at the beautiful and sunny coast of Trøndelag. The focus of the workshop was to obtain an in-depth understanding of study design and sampling decisions in mixed-effect model analyses. The course was given by members of the SQuiD group which consists of a group of behavioral  ecologists interested in teaching how one may empirically study variation in labile phenotypic traits (i.e. traits that have a hierarchical structure). The attendants are introduced to, and trained in using the R-package SQuiD, which will be very helpful in their research. Discussing science on such a beautiful place, with delicious food and happy people will certainly maximize the learning output of the workshop! Both photos by Thor Harald Ringsby.
