General information

Meta-analysis is the quantitative synthesis and analysis of a collection of independent studies. It provides a more objective and powerful way of summarizing evidence across studies than descriptive reviews.

The importance and utility of this quantitative method for answering new questions and synthesizing existing results in different fields of scientific research is demonstrated by the dramatic increase in the number of studies using meta-analysis in the last ten years.

The course will provide the basics of meta-analysis. The emphasis of the course is both on the conceptual understanding and practical use of this method, as applied to ecological questions. It will consist of lectures, discussions, and practical exercises. Download Flyer.
