Course Introduction to Ecological Data Analysis, Oct. 3-7, Barcelona.

Dear colleague,
New edition of the course "Introduction to Ecological Data Analysis - 2nd 
Edition", October 3rd-7th, 2016. 
Instructor: Dr. Øyvind Hammer (University of Oslo, Norway).
This course is aimed at postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and 
established academics.
In this course we will cover the most important subjects in univariate and 
multivariate statistics from a very practical perspective, with real data sets 
and realistic problem solving. We will give a practical introduction to 
multivariate community analysis, spatial and time series analysis as applied to 
ecological, environmental and geological data.
Participants will learn to address questions such as geographical distribution 
of communities, interactions between communities and their physical 
environment, ecological change through time in response to sudden or gradual 
environmental change (pollution, climate), and patterns of diversity.
We will use the free and friendly Past 
 ] software (written by the lecturer), but the methods are equally relevant for 
users of other programs.
