 **Target audience:** senior undergraduate and graduate ecology students focused on botany and zoology, who are planning to do a study at the community level (i.e. not on a single species, but on the multiple species occurring at multiple localities). The class may be useful also for other disciplines handling multivariate data (e.g. microbiology),​ but the main focus is on ecological data. If you study PhD and want to join, you are welcome, but expect that some of the teaching materials will cover rather basic things. **Target audience:** senior undergraduate and graduate ecology students focused on botany and zoology, who are planning to do a study at the community level (i.e. not on a single species, but on the multiple species occurring at multiple localities).

-===== Information for students outside of Taipei ===== 
- 
-  * The course is taught during the weekend to make it convenient for students outside of Taipei to attend. Please, find an accomodation near the NTU's campus, and make sure you can be in the class on Saturday morning 9 a.m. (if you are coming from farer distance, consider arriving to Taipei already on Friday night). If you do not wish to get certificate,​ you do not need to attend the third weekend (only one day focused on final test, presentations and discussion),​ even if I would suggest you to do so. If you have any question related to the participation in the course, please feel free to contact me (zeleny@ntu.edu.tw)!
