About this book

Intended to assist senior undergraduates and post-graduate students in designing their own experiments and establishing a research program in plant population ecology. Individual chapters cover facets of experimental design, statistics, experimental variables and treatments, measurements of plants and their environment, spatial pattern analysis, life tables, and modelling. Numerous citations to the current research literature are provided, and four case studies are referred to throughout the book to illustrate the use of methodology.

"A remarkable book! I expect that a whole generation of students will profit immensely from its reading."
- Marcel Rejmanek, University of California, Davis, USA
