Berkeley Initiative in Global Change

It’s been great to be involved in the BIGCB. Our group is trying to figure out what to do with gigabytes of biogeographic data of disparate origin and quality. So far we are expanding occupancy-like methods to understand how to model communities through time and apply these new methods to the past 12,000 years of biodiversity dynamics recorded in the Berkeley Natural History Museums.
