"Things that set this volume apart from the ordinary include short discussions of more advanced methods at the end of most chapters, a full chapter on data management, two chapters on study design, and wonderful footnotes with historical notes and short biographies."--Philip Dixon, The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Many ecology-related degrees require only a single statistics course, leaving a wide gap between students' knowledge and what they need to know. Gotelli and Ellison's book--written by ecologists with extensive experience teaching graduate and undergraduate statistics courses--helps fill this gap. I have found this book, aided by the very easy writing style of the authors, is equally well received by graduate and undergraduate students as a textbook in courses on ecological analyses, particularly when used as a bridge to more advanced books on specific topics. The book uses ecological data throughout, much of it collected by the authors, and all data are available on the book's web site, making it easy to use those data in labs."--Michael Gillingham, The American Statistician

Graves; 1996, Smithsonian Press), A Field Guide to the Ants of New England (with Aaron M. Ellison, Elizabeth J. Farnsworth, and Gary D. Alpert; 2012, Yale University Press), and EcoSim, an ecological software package. His research interests include: the evolutionary ecology of carnivorous plants, heat shock proteins and the responses of ant assemblages to climate change, environmental proteomics, biogeography, and statistical ecology. Dr. Gotelli currently serves on the editorial boards of Ecology, The Journal of Biogeography, Scientific Reports, and Myrmecological News.
AARON M. ELLISON is Senior Research Fellow in Ecology at the Harvard Forest and Adjunct Professor in the Graduate Program in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA.

He is also the author of A Field Guide to the Ants of New England (with Nicholas J. Gotelli, Elizabeth J. Farnsworth, and Gary D. Alpert; 2012, Yale University Press). His research foci include: food web dynamics, community ecology of wetlands and forests, evolutionary ecology of carnivorous plants, and the application of Bayesian inference to ecological research and environmental decision-making. Dr. Ellison is the Editor-in-Chief of Ecological Monographs.
