PERMANOVA+ for PRIMER Workshop on Multivariate Analysis in Ecology (& other Sciences)

  • College of William and Mary 200 Stadium Dr Williamsburg, VA, 23186 United States (map)

This is a 5-day PERMANOVA+ workshop led by the instigator of these methods, Prof Marti J. Anderson FRSNZ (New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study, Massey University), an ecological statistician whose initial training in marine ecology and subsequent move into theoretical statistics led to the development of these methods for analyzing more complex structured designs found in ecology and a similarly wide range of disciplines, in which the ability to handle multivariate data is key. This workshop is aimed at practicing scientists rather than theoretical statisticians, and covers the full range of semi-parametric permutation-based statistical tests for crossed and nested designs with several fixed/random interacting factors, including unbalanced designs or those with covariates; unconstrained and constrained ordination (including analogues of discriminant analysis); and dissimilarity-based multiple linear regression for modeling links between multivariate responses and explanatory variables. The workshop is aimed at practitioners, and is appropriate for people who already have some experience of multivariate analyses, such as that covered in typical PRIMER 7 workshops.
