About this book

Ecological problems naturally involve numerous variables and numerous individuals or samples, and multivariate techniques permit the summary of large, complex sets of data. Using a wide range of examples, this book describes three methodologies: direct gradient analysis, ordination, and classification, from both theoretical and practical viewpoints.

This is an interesting, readable book...There is much that is wise and thought-provoking in this book. Ecology "Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professional ecological researchers will benefit from Gauch's up-to-date synthesis of the field and a wide range of illustrative examples." Journal of Range Management
