Welcome to the Young Zoologists Workshop Series!

After the success of our previous workshop series, we’re back with more free online skill-building webinars for early-career researchers in the field of zoology. For the theme of this workshop, we’re buckling down on Statistics for Zoologists: Analytical Insights and Practical Applications!

This workshop aims to provide insight into common mistakes, get deeper into their explanation, propose solutions, and present specific data treatments and models often used in zoology.
