Prezi on introducing spatial statistics

Last semester, I provided a couple of guest lectures in Margaret Moore’s Landscape Ecology class on spatial statistics. Spatial statistics, tools that hold a special place in my heart, are commonly used for understanding data distributed in a space where positions and distance have meaning; and are highly useful tools in forestry and ecology. This prezi is meant to be a brief introduction, and is expanded upon in my 599 class.
I had completely forgotten to publish the prezi, so here it is…. I hope some of you find it useful.

Prezi on overview of LEARN

Yesterday, I presented an invited talk to the Kaibab National Forest of an overview of the ERI’s LEARN (Long-term Ecological Assessment and Restoration Network). LEARN includes ten permanently marked, well-documented research sites where researchers have used standardized methods of data collection to facilitate long-term monitoring. The LEARN allows researchers and land managers to compare the effects of forest restoration treatments (and in one case, fuels reduction) on all aspects of ecosystem dynamics across a variety of forest types from pinyon-juniper to ponderosa pine to dry mixed conifer. Research on LEARN sites has been tremendously productive (over 120 peer-reviewed manuscripts), and has proven influential in informing larger, landscape-scale restoration treatments across the Southwest.
