About this book

Data analysis can help ecologists to interpret field data on plant and animal communities and their environment. This book, revised and updated, provides a synthesis of methods that have proved most useful, with examples, exercises and case studies. Chapters explain powerful data analysis techniques such as logit regression, canonical correspondence analysis, and kriging.
`...a valuable addition to the literature of modern quantitative ecology.' RH Green, Biometrics.
