The PaleoDB is a tremendous, if complex, resource for palaeobiological research. This three-day course will unlock the potential of the PaleoDB for a wider user base, including neontologists who could make use of palaeontological data in their work. We are also keen to engage with organizations whose key role is not palaeobiological research, but nonetheless could be contribute new data or find new uses for palaeontological data. Another key aim is to build UK and European involvement in the PaleoDB. Materials developed, including R scripts, would be put on the eSC website and offered to the Association to facilitate future training events.
This meeting is intended for Quantitative palaeobiologists, macroecologists and those involved in the stewardship of data that could be relevant to palaeobiodiversity.
This event is provisionally scheduled to start at 10:30 Tuesday 26 April 2011 and close at 16:00 on Thursday 28 April 2011.
