Stats, Rats, and Habitats | How statistics is good for conservation
Dr Rachel Fewster's fascinating talk discussed how statisticians are helping create a Predator-Free New Zealand.
Using statistics and genetics, researchers work to track the rats, mice, and stoats that arrive unexpectedly on sanctuary islands.
Such methods can often pinpoint the exact place an unexpected animal came from, even when the possible sources are only the length of a football pitch apart.
