Project working title: Spatio-temporal patterns of Q10 values for improved modeling of heterotrophic soil respiration

Between March 2017 and March 2018, I attended four statistic courses, which were organized and led by Prof. Dr. Bernard Ludwig in Witzenhausen. These workshops were especially important for me as statistics are part of my everyday work. Especially the focus on statistical problems related to soil science attracted my interest and motivated me to attend these workshops.

The courses included lectures on diverse statistical methods, e.g., regression analyses, variance analyses, multivariate statistics like PCA, etc. Besides, hands-on sessions in R were included. Further, we discussed typical mistakes during setup of experimental designs and data analysis.

Overall, the workshop was a great opportunity for me to consolidate my statistic skills and to discuss with other soil scientists about statistical problems. The gained knowledge will be certainly helpful to avoid statistical errors in data analysis and publications. I thank the IRTG for the chance to participate.
