Collection and analysis of field data for estimation of primate density or abundance
The workshop 'Collection and analysis of field data for estimation of primate density or abundance', will be held at the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM), University of St Andrews from 30th July to 1st August 2008.
The concepts of distance sampling will be explained and the assumptions of the methods discussed. The focus of the workshop will be on practical application of the methods. Drs. Andrew Plumptre and Anne Savage will assist in discussing the practical implementation of these methods in primate research.
The workshop instructors are:

- Anne Savage, a conservation biologist at Disney's Animal Kingdom
- Sam Strindberg, a biometrician and monitoring specialist with WCS
- Steve Buckland, chair of Statistics at the University of St Andrews and founding director of Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM), a research centre devoted to working on the interface between statistics and ecology. Steve is lead author on the standard reference works Introduction to Distance Sampling and Advanced Distance Sampling.
- Len Thomas , is an academic fellow in Statistics at the University of St Andrews and a member of CREEM and RUWPA. He is the principal developer of the new versions of Distance, and has been involved in several research projects related to distance sampling.
