Notes on data science, philosophy, the environment, and other things I like.
Is this idea of win-wins for conservation and economic development too good to be true? Is it possible to balance conservation and development in a way that truly benefits both? Or is the win-win narrative just hollow rhetoric? In this blog post, I will examine the merits and limitations of win-win solutions for conservation and development, going beyond the rhetoric to explore the realities of this approach.
Conservation means different things to different people. Differences in personal values underpin an individual’s approach to environmental conservation. So how do we as individuals place different values on the natural world and what are we really trying to protect? Is it just a matter of preserving certain species or habitats, or is there something deeper and more fundamental at stake?
Some quick intuition for Bayesian and frequentist models with some glm examples in R. Using some tricks makes fitting variant models in stand quite simple.
This is the inaugral post of my new personal website in which I present some background on my recent adventures and motivation of learning some basic web development skills.
Bayesian and frequentist approaches to binomial dose responses in R - Part II. LC50s are ubiquitous in dose response modelling, but they are not always easy to estimate. A Bayesian approach can help here.
I have been flip flopping between next-mdx and next-mdx-remote as I build this blog and learn more about Next.js. The process of making a Table of Contents taught me a lot about strengths of both approaches to rendering mdx files with Next.js
Bayesian and frequentist approaches to binomial dose responses in R - Part I. Understanding how an endpoint, like mortality, varies with exposure or dosage is important in many situations. Here we look at two common approaches and their relative benefits.
Population growth - Part III. What happens one one growing population eats another?
Population growth - Part II. Population growth can't go on forever. Here we have a look at how constraints are commonly incorporated into simple population growth models.
Population growth - Part I. Population growth is a fundamental process in ecological modelling. Here I provide some similar derivations with a real world example.
