Title: On the analysis of life-history tradeoffs when covariates or random effects exist:
Description: I'll discuss statistical issues of traditional univariate-response methods of analyzing life-history trait associations and one option for moving forward (multivariate-response models implemented in the Bayesian r package MCMCglmm). I'd love feedback on my proposed multivariate-response framework and if other packages exist with similar capabilities, particularly with frequentist stats.
