Usually, we model demographic rates and use them to make inferences about population-level processes. The idea of doing the reverse - using population time-series to make conclusions about demographic rates - is not new, but challenging and bound by many assumptions.

In this session, we will discuss a very recent paper on reverse parameter estimation using IPM methodology, to see what new developments have been made for this idea.

We will discuss the basics underlying the construction and analysis of Integral Projection Models (IPMs), a class of structured population models which allow the inclusion of continuous individual covariates such as body size.

In doing so, we discuss a recent paper coming from our midst with an interesting extension of the standard IPM methodology:

"Individual heterogeneity in life histories and eco-evolutionary dynamics" (Vindenes & Langangen, 2015)

Late Lunch Talk by Mark Ravinet.

Time and place: Dec. 11, 2015 11:00 AM12:00 PM, Room 3513

This Friday we will focus on a book chapter from Symonds and Blomberg (2014) on Phylogenetic Generalised Least Squares from a recently published book on phylogenetic comparative methods. This will be an introduction for a discussion on the use of appropriate methodology when it comes to comparative methods. If you yourself are wondering what to use in your own research, come join the discussion!
