Research Abstract : 
Predicting species potential using a Bayesian hierarchical model

Information on topic. I envisage a multilevel model to illuminate biological concepts such as species range, species diversity, species diversity and species turnover.

I intend to apply the model to an area of high species richness and diversity so as to allow for complex modelling. 

Progress to date: I have read several related papers but mainly one entitled ‘Explaining species distribution patterns through hierarchical modelling.’ By Alan E. Gelfand et al.  That has informed the development of my project proposal.
