Time series analysis workshop

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.


LTsER Montado platform joins Lifeplan project

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.
