PERMANOVA+, Online Course

Online Workshop Details

PERMANOVA+ will be presented by Dr Adam N. H. Smith (Massey University)

PERMANOVA+ allows analysis of multivariate data in response to complex designs, partitioning variation in multivariate data on the basis of a resemblance measure of choice, with rigorous inferences via permutation methods. The tools in PERMANOVA+ provide formal models, tests and predictions for multivariate (or univariate) ecological (and other) systems that are over-parameterised (i.e., have too many variables) or that demonstrate substantial non-normality.

Participants will explore: analysis and estimation of components of variation in complex experimental designs, including interactions, covariates, contrasts, fixed or random effects, crossed or nested models, unbalanced designs, environmental impact designs, randomised blocks or repeated measures (PERMANOVA); tests for homogeneity of multivariate dispersions and analyses of beta diversity (PERMDISP); multivariate regression and model selection procedures (DISTLM); unconstrained (PCO) or constrained ordinations using distance-based redundancy analysis (dbRDA) or canonical analysis of principal coordinates (CAP), leave-one-out allocation success for discriminant analysis or canonical correlation analyses based on resemblance matrices and the placement of new points into existing predictive canonical models.

The workshop will flow between lectures and lab sessions, with opportunities for participants to analyse their own datasets in consultation with the presenter. Familiarity with the core methods in PRIMER 6 or 7 (e.g., having previously attended a PRIMER workshop) and/or some prior knowledge of basic multivariate methods and experimental design is desirable for a PERMANOVA+ workshop. An online PRIMER 7 workshop will be held 6th – 10th June 2022, Central European Summer Time (UTC +2hrs). Details can be found HERE.
