ADAPT Academic launches website on statistical modelling approaches

07 November 2023

ADAPT Academic, Professor Caroline Brophy (Trinity College Dublin), launched a new website providing resources for a statistical modelling approach on the 6th November 2023. This website has been developed in collaboration with members of her research team Rishabh Vishwakarma and Laura Byrne, both Trinity College Dublin PhD Students.

The website focuses on the approach for modelling the ‘biodiversity and ecosystem function’ relationship, which in ecology is all about modelling the effects of changing species diversity on the outputs of an ecosystem. For those new to Diversity-Interactions modelling, the site provides an in-depth overview explaining the concept here.

Find out all about the WHY, WHAT and HOW of Diversity-Interactions models in the website’s introductory video series:

  • WHY use Diversity-Interactions model?
  • WHAT is a Diversity-Interactions model anyway?
  • HOW can a fitted Diversity-Interactions model be interpreted?

New users can access examples and code for modelling the biodiversity and ecosystem function (BEF) relationship for two-, three- and nine-species examples to help get started with Diversity-Interactions modelling:

The development of the website was supported by Science Foundation Ireland Frontiers for the Future programme.
