GEco seminar by Bert van der Veen: Generalized Linear Latent Variable Models (GLLVMs)
Dimension-reduction techniques are a useful class of methods in the toolbox of any ecologist. Dimension-reduction techniques, better known as ordination, have been applied in ecology for more than 50 years. In recent years, a more statistically correct method, called Generalized Linear Latent Variable Models (GLLVMs) has become available. GLLVMs are a model-based approach to ordination, but are also known as Joint Species Distribution Models (JSDMs).
In this seminar, Bert van der Veen, who is a PhD candidate in statistics at NIBIO and NTNU, will give an overview of GLLVMs and outline some of their connections to more classical ordination methods.
