Ecology Workshop Overview

There are no pre-requisites, and the materials assume no prior knowledge about the tools. The data for this workshop are is the Portal Project Teaching Database available on FigShare, with a CC-BY license available for reuse. The Portal Project Teaching Database is a simplified version of the Portal
Project Database designed for teaching. It is a tabular dataset of observations
of small mammals in a desert ecosystem in Arizona, USA, collected over more than 40 years.
It provides a real world example of
life-history, population, and ecological data, with sufficient complexity to
teach many aspects of data analysis and management, but with many complexities
removed to allow students to focus on the core ideas and skills being taught. More information on this dataset The workshop can be taught using R or Python as the base language.
