The eLTER SPF Training working group is organising its first workshop on time series analysis, given by Ulrike Obertegger (FEM-CRI, Italy).
The workshop is open to everyone from students to researchers, independently of involvement in eLTER projects. The workshop will give an introduction to the challenges of time series data and demonstrate different analysis methods. This is not a technical course but a practical demonstration of what can be done to solve certain ecological questions.
All the analyses are done in R and thus a basic understanding of R coding is helpful but not necessary.

The workshop will be organised twice with the same content:
· Wednesday 1 December 2021 at 14:00-16:00 CET
· Monday 24 January 2022 at 14:00-16:00 CET

· Introduction on basic terminology
· Classic time series analyses. Mann Kendall, Sen Theil trend estimation
· Change point analysis
· Modeling time series with cosine trends
· Clustering of time-series with DTW

R-script and example data will be provided one week before the workshop.

The monitoring station of Companhia das Lezírias (CL) joined the LIFEPLAN project, as a representative of the montado landscape. Every week and until 2026, the cE3c team will collect the images and sounds recorded automatically by cameras and audiomoths installed on trees, and samples of spores and flying insects collected with a cyclone sampler and a malaise trap. Soil samples will also be collected 8 times a year. This sampling effort will be alternating every year with the correspondent Lisbon urban site. All data collected will be integrating a global dataset to better understand the state of biodiversity on our planet.
