David Warton interviews Trevor Hastie, Professor of Statistics at Stanford University - a leading figure in the discipline who has been instrumental in the development and uptake of a range of modern analysis methods, including generalised additive models, the LASSO, and boosting. Trevor talks about his recent paper "Inference from presence-only data; the ongoing controversy" with Will Fithian in Ecography, which is a response to Royle et al's "Likelihood analysis of species occurrence probability from presence-only data for modelling species distributions" in Methods in Ecology and Evolution.
