Format: Paperback
This is an excellent and extremely valuable book, although written primarily for community and landscape ecologists, much of it is directly relevant to palaeoecologists. The largest chapter is on ordination which builds up from indirect gradient analysis methods of correspondence analysis, detrended correspondence analysis, principal components analysis, and biplots to the new direct gradient analysis techniques of canonical correspondence analysis and redundancy analysis. There are also excellent chapters on regression, and on the analysis of spatial data, with clear introductions to spatial autocorrelation, spatial semivariance, and kriging (a powerful spatial-interpolation technique). Other chapters concern data collection, classification, and case studies.
The book provides a wonderful introduction to many new and powerful methods of data analysis that are of direct applicability in palaeoecology. It is written for those "who want to understand better the methods they are using and are eager to learn new, more powerful methods". It is a must for any quantitative palaeoecologist.

A standard work in vegetation ecology 12 Feb. 2001
By Meirmans - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a standard in the discipline of vegetation ecology and probably the best introductiion to the field. This is a thoroughly revised new edition of the original book from 1986. It is a good introduction to the various methods available for analysis of vegetation data, like correspondence analysis, principle components analysis and regression analysis. A good point about this book is that consistently works with the same example dataset for explaining all different analysis methods. This clearly shows the differences in outcome of the different methods. A bad point is that its not always written very clearly and includes some very theoretical parts.
