A complete introduction to multivariate statistics for environmental science
Introductory Multivariate Statistics for the Environmental Science is a targeted text for those who are dealing with data collected in the field from environmental sources. Rather than describe in detail the mathematics behind multivariate statistical analysis, Multivariate Statistics for the Environmental Sciences focuses on the application of analysis to real-world situations. After first providing a broad overview of what multivariate statistics is, the book goes on to cover topics such as measurements of ecological diversity, linear regression, ordination, principal components analysis, correspondence analysis, classification, and various other multivariate techniques.
