Biostatistics & Modeling


Biostatistics & Modeling

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 custom tailor effective and efficient study designs and to conduct the appropriate analyses for a wide variety of studies. Our services include:

  • spatial modeling of animal distributions from telemetry or survey data
  • 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
  • modeling 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
  • modeling of spring snow distribution from satellite imagery and field-based sampling
  • random forest analysis to provide quantitative estimates of vegetation properties
