Organization profile

Organisation Profile

Environmental sciences includes a broad range of scientific fields studying the environment and solutions to environmental challenges. Ecology studies the distribution and abundance of species, and their interactions with other species and the environment. Statistical inference and uncertainty estimation are essential for both fields to ensure that appropriate conclusions and decisions can be reached from experiments and observations.

The Environmental and Ecological Statistics group (EnvStat) works in the departments of Mathematics and Statistics at Faculty of Science and in the Organismal and Evolutionary Biology Research Program at the Faculty of, Bio- and Environmental Sciences. Our research interests span from the theoretical and computational statistics to applied ecology and environmental risk assessment and management.

International and National Collaboration Publications and projects within past five years.
