Studentprojekt: Tuggummin som en indikator för nedskräpning i urbana miljöer

Studenter sökes för ett projekt under våren 2017 Detta projekt går ut på att ta reda på hur förekomst av tuggummin förhåller sig till förekomst av skräp i urbana miljöer samt att undersöka i vilken takt nedskräpning sker på olika typer av platser i städer. Länkar till hur tuggumin uppmärksammas Projektet innehåller en fältstudie där mängd och ålder på tuggumin … Continue reading

Bayesian Analysis for curious learners

I often get questions from students about opportunities to get started with Bayesian Analysis. Most courses in BA at Lund University is given on an advanced mathematical level, or as a few lectures (if all) in a statistics course. Bayesian Analysis is useful both in research and decision making. Our students are the future scientists, consultants or policy makers for important … Continue reading

What happens when a student wants to learn something cool – like Environmental Evidence Synthesis

This week the first master student working with some of the concepts behind Environmental Evidence Synthesis were examinated. We are impressed by the speed she has from scratch learned Bayesian modelling, got to know R and OpenBugs, and ended up with applying Bayesian Evidence Synthesis on Conservation planning problems. Below I post the popular summary of Yf Jiangs master’s thesis … Continue reading
