The course starts with a short revision of multiple linear regression and generalised linear models, followed by an introduction to linear mixed effects models and generalised linear mixed effects models (GLMM) to analyse nested (also called hierarchical or clustered) data, e.g. multiple observations from the same animal, site, area, nest, patient, hospital, vessel, lake, hive, transect, etc.
In the second part of the course GLMMs are applied on continuous, binary, proportional and count data using the Gaussian, Poisson, negative binomial, Bernoulli, binomial, beta, beta-binomial, gamma, generalised Poisson, and the Conway-Maxwell Poisson distributions.
We will also discuss how to add temporal or spatial correlation structures.
We will be using nlme, lmer and glmmTMB.
