Understanding and predicting ecological dynamics at a macro scale is crucial for the conservation of global biodiversity. But macro-scale ecological studies usually rely on data, such as volunteer-based monitoring data or natural history collections, which tend to have inherent problems that need to be dealt with first. Hierarchical Bayesian models provide a robust framework for tackling such problems in macro-scale ecological data. In this talk, I will introduce the potential of hierarchical Bayesian models using two examples of actual applications in my own work: estimating long-term phenological changes in British plants and explaining varying effectiveness of organic farming in Japanese rice fields at a broad scale.
