What we do
UVic Ecostats is a graduate student-run group that aims to facilitate the learning of statistics as they apply to ecological systems. We meet on a weekly basis during the Fall and Spring semesters and everyone is welcome to attend. We believe that statistics should not be scary and that we can tackle our ecological stats problems with a group of like-minded peers.
This year we are focusing on building the basics and advancing our skills. We will be starting from the ground up to build our statistical knowledge and skills by working collectively through tutorials that were made by the Coding Club. If you have previous stats experience and think this sounds unbeneficial, don't worry, Dom has been coding in R for over 8 years and learns something new in every tutorial. Plus the discussions we have together will help to expand and reinforce concepts as well. We hope that these meetings will help everyone to gain confidence and the skills needed to conduct our research.
