This course covers a variety of descriptive and inferential multivariate statistical methods that are useful for analyzing biological data. Participants use computers to analyze ecological data and apply the various multivariate procedures covered by the instructor. Several case studies of multivariate techniques applied to field data are discussed. Rice Virtual Lab in Statistics

Objectives:
- Identify the basic concepts of matrix algebra, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and multivariate normality;
- Demonstrate methods for displaying relationships and position (principal components analysis, factor analysis, biplot displays, correspondence analysis, multidimensional scaling, and cluster analysis);
- Perform procedures for group separation (MANOVA, canonical variate analysis, discriminant analysis, logistic regression);
- Describe techniques for determining relationships between sets of variables (canonical correlation analysis and canonical correspondence analysis); and
- Analyze repeated measures.

Target Audience:
Anyone responsible for collecting, analyzing, and/or interpreting multi-variable data.
