AniMove summerschool 2016

The AniMove summerschool in 2016 takes place in Germany, Lake Konstanz at MPI-O. Animal movement is critical for maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The study of complex movement patterns and of the factors that control such patterns is essential to inform conservation research and environmental management. Technological advances have greatly increased our ability to track, study, and manage animal movements. But analyzing and contextualizing vast amounts of tracking data can present scientific, computational, and technical challenges that require scientists and practitioners to master new skills from a wide range of computational disciplines. AniMove, a collective of international researchers...
