About this book

All but one of the chapters are written by ecologists and biologists who highlight the application of a particular method to a particular class of problem.

'I believe this book is a very useful contribution and an excellent starting point for ecologists who are interested in applying machine learning methods to ecological problems.' Uygar Ozesmi in Ecology, 81:9 (2000)
