Biostatistics & Modelling


ABR’s staff has the expertise to design and execute a wide range of statistical analyses supporting research across multiple scientific disciplines. Our training in statistics, GIS, remote sensing, and biological subject areas enable us to tailor effective and efficient study designs and conduct the appropriate analyses for a wide variety of studies. Services include:

  • spatial modelling of animal distributions from telemetry or survey data including occupancy, kernel densities, and Brownian bridge movement models
  • stochastic population models for caribou and other large mammals
  • multi-scale resource selection function analyses of seasonal distribution
  • analysis of factors influencing avian movement rates from radar targets
  • modelling probability of avian-wind turbine collisions based on turbine design
  • post-construction analysis of avian and bat fatality rates at wind farms and transmission lines
  • modelling of spring snow distribution from satellite imagery and field-based sampling
  • random forest analysis to provide quantitative estimates of vegetation properties from satellite imagery and field-based sampling
ABR's triple bottom line: "Environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic viability"
