Abstract

Data from insect studies may present different features. Univariate responses may be analyzed using generalized linear models (continuous and discrete data), survival models (time until event data), mixed effects models (longitudinal data), among other methods. These models may be used to analyze experiments which assess complex ecological processes, such as competition. In that sense, computational tools are useful for researchers on several fields, e.g., insect biology and physiology, applied ecology and biological control. This project aims to develop a statistical toolbox to analyze data from insect studies. These methods will be implemented as a package for statistical software R, so that they are available for researchers worldwide for free.
