Book Description

1 Dec 1997 0632038594 978-0632038596
Geographical information systems are one of the most revolutionary and important tools that have become available to ecological researchers in recent years. Many ecologists are unaware, however, of the full power of GIS techniques and are not using them to their full advantage. By providing examples of ecological applications at scales ranging from organisms to landscapes, this new book offers basic information on the variety of analyses available using GIS. Also discussed is the full scope for linkage to related technologies like remote sensing and methods like spatially explicit modelling. Researchers will find this an invaluable guide to applying and getting the most out of GIS techniques.

  • Presumes no previous GIS experience.
  • A practical guide to using GIS in ecological research.
  • Uses numerous and varied experimental examples and data.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview 24 Jun 2000
By William Adair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Geographic Information Systems in Ecology" provides a good overview of basic geographic concepts that ecologists use to analyze spatial patterns. Johnston starts out with basic GIS concepts, then moves to linear, topographic, temporal, and spatial interpolation techniques, and then wraps up with GPS concepts and basic modeling.
This is not a cookbook or how-to manual, but rather much more. Johnston's emphasis on the fundamentals holds up well, given the rapid speed with which this field is evolving. I expect that this will be an equally valuable reference 10 years from now.
