Product description

Review


"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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great review of statistics for ecologists 26 Nov. 2014
By A. Ertman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great review of statistics for ecologists. It's not as detailed as some of my other statistics books but it's got a much more approachable style and for basic concepts it's helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 13 Feb. 2014
By Kinfinity - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent way to learn statistics, especially in regards to an ecological framework. This book is teaching me more about stats than my actual class, so I owe it any success I have in the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and thorough 7 Jun. 2013
By Claire Burgett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book starts with the basics, but introduces ideas about data management. The authors often get into the mathematical details about the statistical methods. Yet, the style of writing makes it a relatively easy read. If you are looking for details on a special case of a particular method or information about using statistical programs this isn't the right book. I highly recommend it, especially for a new ecologist.
