About the Meta-analysis workshop
Ecological questions can be answered by systematic reviews that identify, appraise, select and synthesize all high-quality, relevant research evidence. They often use meta-analysis as a statistical technique to combine results of the eligible studies. During the workshop the following statistical methods and problems will be discussed and used with real ecological data: calculation of effect sizes, cumulative effect size and heterogeneity, fixed- and random-effect meta-analysis, biases. The theoretical introduction will be combined with practices in R.
