Time series models for ecologists (TSME01)

26th June 2017 - 30th June 2017

£575.00 - £690.00

Course Overview:

This course will cover time series analysis with a particular focus on applications in ecology. All methods will be illustrated using the free, open-source software package R. Time Series data are ubiquitous in the physical sciences, and models for their behaviour enable scientists to understand temporal dynamics and predict future values. Participants will be taught a wide range of suitable time series models for both discrete and continuous time systems. The course will cover a range of techniques from simple exponential smoothing and ARIMA modelling approaches up to complex Bayesian models. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the models being fitted, and be able interpret the results appropriately. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data sets for discussion with the course tutors.

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in spatial ecology and management and environmental professionals in government and industry.
