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.

'This excellent book ... should be on the bookshelf of all ecologists who are concerned with the relationship between plant community composition and environmental factors.' T. J. Carleton, Vegetatio 'This is an excellent and extremely valuable book ... The book provides a wonderfully stimulating introduction to many new and powerful methods of data analysis ... It is a must for any quantitative palaeoecologist.' H. B. J. Birks, INQUA Holocene Commission Newsletter '... well produced and well indexed, it has excellent bibliographical notes. It should be consulted by all who want to inquire into the mathematics behind numerical methods.' M. O. Hill, Journal of Applied Ecology '... excellent work ...' Journal of Applied Ecology
