Spatial capture-recapture: integrating observations and ecological theory

Natural Resources
This talk explores the widespread adoption of new technologies for sampling animal populations such as remote cameras and noninvasive genetics, conceptual and analytic frameworks for analysis of such data have developed rapidly. Spatial capture-recapture (SCR) is one such advance. Unlike classical capture-recapture models, SCR makes use of both temporal and spatial information from individual encounters. Such auxiliary spatial information is informative about many different aspects of spatial population ecology such as resource selection, landscape connectivity and movement.

Andy Royle is a research statistician, in the position of Senior Scientist at USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. He holds a BS in Wildlife Management from Michigan State University and a PhD in Statistics from North Carolina State University (awarded in 1996). At Patuxent, he is engaged in the development of statistical methods and analytic tools for animal demographic modeling, statistical inference and sampling wildlife populations and communities. His current research focuses on hierarchical models of animal abundance and occurrence, and the development of spatial capture-recapture methods and applications.

Schaub Memorial Lecture 2017 -- "Sanctuary Cities: What Are the Issues?"

HSU Campus
The Politics Department invites you to the 13th annual Victor T. Schaub Memorial Lecture on Local Politics. This year’s theme, presented by Kathleen Lee and Julie Fulkerson, is “Sanctuary Cities: What are the Issues?”

A sanctuary city is one that has adopted a policy of protecting unauthorized immigrants by not prosecuting them for violating federal immigration laws and by ensuring that all residents have access to city services, regardless of immigration status. Although the specific name “sanctuary cities” comes from 1980s protests against federal immigration policies that denied asylum to refugees from U.S. funded wars in Central America, the tradition dates back to the birth of the U.S. government when states and cities opposed to slavery offered sanctuary to escaped slaves.

The event will explore the constitutional questions and conflicts that date back to the Pre Civil War era, as well as threats by the Trump Administration to strip away federal funding from cities that declare themselves to be sanctuaries.

Kathleen Lee is a lecturer in the Politics Department.

Julie Fulkerson has served as Council Member and Mayor, City of Arcata; Board Member and Chair of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors; and Council Member and Mayor, City of Trinidad.
Open to HSU students, faculty, staff and the community. Persons who wish to request disability related accommodations should contact the Politics Department at 707-826-4494 or as soon as possible. Some accommodations may take up to several weeks to arrange.

Refreshments provided.

Opera Workshop: "The Stories We Tell"

Gist Hall Theater
"The Stories We Tell" is the theme for this semester's Opera Workshop performances. But don't let the word opera throw you! A variety of musical genres have been selected to reflect a broad cross-section of the human experience, including musical theater, musical performance art, a staged version of a four-part choral work, and of course popular light opera. At the helm is Elisabeth Harrington, professor of music at HSU and the director of the Opera Workshop program.

Some of the stories being told include the melodic and heartfelt "Fathers of Fathers," featuring three men telling stories of their fathers from different stages of their lives; a scene from the Pulitzer Prize winning "Of Thee I Sing" which is a musical lampooning of American politics composed by George and Ira Gershwin; a story of manipulation through advertising called "Angry Birdsong;" a comic four-part harmony retelling of the cautionary tale "Hansel and Gretel;" and the hilarious Gallantry, which is a commentary on rampant commercialism in modern society told through a circa 1950s television soap opera which is constantly interrupted by sung commercials for a product no one needs.

Direction is by Elisabeth Harrington assisted by Jessie Rawson, John Chernoff accompanies the student singers on the piano, and costumes are by Catherine Brown.

Performances of "The Stories We Tell" are at the Gist Hall Theater on March 23rd through 26th, Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 and on Sunday at 2:00.
8:00 pm
