About this book

Revised second edition of this classic textbook. Chapters from the first edition have been substantially revised and new chapters have been added, introducing statistical techniques that may be unfamiliar to many ecologists, including power analysis, logistic regression, randomization tests and empirical Bayesian analysis. In addition, a strong foundation is laid in more established statistical techniques in ecology including exploratory data analysis, spatial statistics, path analysis and meta-analysis. Each technique is presented in the context of resolving an ecological issue.


"The 18 chapters in this graduate textbook on advanced statistical techniques for ecologists describe such methods as power analysis, logistic regression, randomization tests, and empirical Bayesian analysis. The second edition reflects changes in statistical theory, and computer software and hardware capabilities."--SciTech Book News
