Abstract

To most, biostatistics is simply applying known statistical techniques to analyze biological data.  However the very nature of collecting biological data has certain challenges that researchers of other fields do not commonly face.  In this talk we will discuss a sampling error correction method before introducing the prediction and classification properties of neural network modeling with an application to Florida populations of lubber grasshoppers (Romalea microptera).  No biology knowledge is assumed. Undergraduate students are encouraged to attend.
