Meta-analysis in Biology and Environmental Sciences 20191020-20191025


Meta-analysis is the statistical synthesis of the results of different research studies. These tools and the conceptual framework in which they are based provide a widely implemented, cross-disciplinary statistical framework for quantifying, pooling, and evaluating the results of different studies on the same topic.

In this course, students will learn how to conduct a meta-analysis from start to finish. We will also discuss some common mistakes as well as controversies regarding the implementation of meta-analysis in the biological and environmental sciences.

The course starts with individual preparatory literature studies that will be examined through two
literature seminars in the first half of October. Students will have an opportunity to join the seminars
at a distance or to hand in written summaries. The main part of the course will be taught full-time during one obligatory week at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Infrastructure at Tjärnö (SLC)outside Strömstad, October 20-25 2019. Each day during the course will include both theoretical lectures and extensive hands-on experience with practical assignments and group projects. Tjärnö is situated approximately 160 km north of Gothenburg and 130 km south of Oslo. More information about the research station is found at:


The on-site course, including a study trip by boat, accommodation and meals, is free of charge but students will need to cover their own travel costs.
The course is recommended to correspond to 5 ECTS, (5 HP) in total, including the preparatory literature study at a distance and one week of intense studies, on site, at SLC Tjärnö.
