Andrew Letten wins Best Ecology and Evolution talk at Postgraduate Review Forum

Andrew Letten, from the Centre for Ecosystems Science, honorary eco-stats member, and champion of bringing more statistics into his work in ecology, picked up the top talk in Ecology and Evolution at the UNSW BEES 2 day Postgrad Review Forum. He gave a cracker on species niche differentiation and trying to find empirical evidence for niche differentiation along soil moisture gradients. He showed the Biology department some cutting edge methods in ecological statistics like mvabund (see video) and joint species distribution modelling.
Great work Andrew!
