I'm looking for courses that could educate me on transforming and analysing my own ecological data through R / RStudio.
In particular I want to learn about the programming and data science, machine learning etc around
- developing home ranges and utilization distributions
- hidden markov models to determine states eg resting, foraging, travelling
- looking for relationships between animal satellite data / capture-recapture and known food source biomass/area, climate and habitat data etc
Some packages I'm interested in include crawl, move, moveHMM, momentuHMM, adehabitatHR and so on.
While I am making progress through the online documentation and lots of Google searching, and time spent analysing other peoples troubleshooting on forums such as this - thought it was worthwhile asking the community if anyone knows of good courses that could help accelerate my understanding. Hopefully that way I can get some good knowledge under my belt before asking silly questions
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and apologies if this forum isn't suitable for this type of question.
