I recently wrote a short course on some aspects of movement ecology, including resource selection and (integrated) step selection analysis, which I deliver from time-to-time at research workshops. It has a rather mathematical leaning, which I think is a good thing.
My notes from a third-year course on the mathematics behind spatial pattern formation in biology can also be downloaded here.
I am a lecturer for the following modules. Module material is available to enrolled students via the MOLE website.
