RT @EpiDoctor: Excellent! by @XavHarrison & co: Best practice in mixed effects modelling and multi-model inference in ecology: https://t.co…
@_lrendell @Helen_Wade_ I believe @XavHarrison has a recent paper on best practice for mixed models - https://t.co/as6K9fz9e8
@davehodgson00 is there an update on the status of https://t.co/UUccBqCvSo ?
RT @fusaroli: @chbergma @shravanvasishth btw, also check this amazing related paper: https://t.co/0mhkXJ5HB0 Ecologists do have all the fun…

Although it's not peer reviewed yet, this is going to be very useful! https://t.co/svIPbii5Um
@jonny5armstrong this might help, has some good examples https://t.co/wP0tl8XT8s
