Julia is a biology PhD student at Tufts UniversityPlant population models help ecologists and managers direct conservation efforts toward those populations that are in greatest risk of collapse. Research has shown that vital rates such as yearly survival and reproductive rate are best estimated using generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs). Long-lived plant species add an extra layer of complexity because their vital rates may be autocorrelated from one year to another. This Guide to Mixed Models in R covers some of the R Libraries that I plan to cover in my talk such as ggplot2, MCMCglmm, scapeMCMC, lme4, among others.Data Science & Engineering
