Fractals and Multifractals in Ecology and Aquatic Science provides scientists with a basic understanding of fractals and multifractals and the techniques that utilize them in analyzing ecological phenomenon. These techniques are especially valuable for analyzing spatial data sets and physical-biological couplings at different spatial and/or temporal scales. Written in a step-by-step fashion, this volume demystifies the techniques, which are often regarded as too complex , and provides an intuitive as well as a formal view for a wide variety of ecological situations and their solutions.
