Time series models for ecologists (TSME02)

1st October 2018 - 5th October 2018

£275.00 – £500.00

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. The course is designed for attendees that have a basic knowledge of R and elementary statistics but not necessarily time series. Time Series data are ubiquitous in the physical sciences, and models for their behaviour enable scientists to understand temporal dynamics and predict future values. The course will cover a range of techniques from time series decomposition, seasonally adjusting, temporal autocorrelation and correlograms, 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 tutor.

Intended Audience

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