About this book

This book provides a foundation for modern applied ecology. Much of current ecology and conservation addresses problems across landscapes and regions, focusing on spatial patterns and processes. Spatial Ecology and Conservation Modeling with R is aimed at teaching fundamental concepts and focuses on learning-by-doing, through the use of examples with the software R. It is intended to provide an entry-level, easily accessible foundation for students and practitioners interested doing spatial ecology and conservation.
