About this book

The spatial and temporal dimensions of ecological phenomena have always been inherent in the conceptual framework of ecology, but only recently have they been incorporated explicitly into ecological theory, sampling design, experimental design and models. Statistical techniques for spatial analysis of ecological data are burgeoning and many ecologists are unfamiliar with what is available and how the techniques should be used correctly. Spatial Analysis: A Guide for Ecologists gives an overview of the wide range of spatial statistics available to analyse ecological data, and provides advice and guidance for graduate students and practising researchers who are either about to embark on spatial analysis in ecological studies or who have started but are unsure how to proceed. Only a basic understanding of statistics is assumed and many schematic illustrations are given to complement or replace mathematical technicalities, making Spatial Analysis: A Guide for Ecologists accessible to ecologists wishing to enter this important and fast-growing field for the first time.

"The overall result is a book that should be well received and prove highly useful to its target audience of graduate students and researchers in ecology, both as an introductory course text in spatial analysis and also for subsequent reference."
