Skills to be acquired in this module
  • Basic methods of explorative statistics and adequate application of statistical tests relevant to ecological data.

  • To learn, interpret and apply methods of habitat modelling
  • To understand the fundamentals of spatial explicit analysis of species-environment relationships as well as the fundamentals of spatial prediction of environmental requirements in species
  • To adequately analyse measured and observed spatial data applying methods of spatial statistics and geostatistics, respectively

  • To learn and to understand relevant methods of multivariate analysis of vegetation data
