Course: Multivariate analysis of ecological data 26 Jan - 6 Feb 2016 Are you a PhD student or researcher in ecology or nature protection? Have you collected data to be analysed with multivariate statistical methods? Do you want to learn what the CCA, RDA, db-RDA, variation partitioning, principal response curves, or PCNM (db-MEM) methods are about? Do you want to include species traits and functional diversity into your toolbox? And do you want to get started on the analysis of your own data? Then come to our course which we are running already for 17 years and which was attended by more than 300 students and researchers. We offer a mixture of introductory lectures and practicals to master wide-range of statistical methods with the Canoco 5 software, as well as opportunity to work on your own data sets with one-to-one consultations by the lecturers. This course is now open for applications, see the "Your application" page at our course site: http://regent.prf.jcu.cz Both lectures and practicals are based on the contents of the second edition of our textbook Multivariate Analysis of Ecological Data using Canoco 5, which we have recently published with the Cambridge University Press: http://www.cambridge.org/9781107694408 One of the course lecturers is also co-author of Canoco 5 and CANOCO 4.5 software, and of TWINSPAN for Windows. Both lecturers studied and work in the field of ecology, so a no-nonsense explanation of all the statistical stuff is assured. We look forward to see you on our course!
