Surveying Natural Populations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A guide to quantitative field ecology — paleoecology — this book makes statistical techniques accessible to a wide range of students and scientists. The chapters take the uninitiated slowly and carefully, and even creatively, through subjects ranging from estimating population densities to estimating the relative abundance of species to measuring and modeling diversity. Designed as a comprehensive primer in essential techniques, this book is filled with lucid explanations, real-world examples, and many applications to research problems of current concern.

Review:

"The authors have written it specifically for ecologists and are using concrete ecological problems to demonstrate which sampling design should be favored and in which circumstance... If you have been buying several statistical and sampling design books with the feeling that you still don't get it, then this book on Surveying Natural Populations is for you. This book is written as a manual since each chapter offers problems but it reads almost like a novel in comparison to normal statistical books." Ecoscience

Review:

"The mathematical orientations of field biologists are as motley as the contents of their knapsacks. Some speak SAS as a second language, while others are confirmed statistical skeptics. But all will appreciate the blend of insight, pragmatism, and even dry humor that Hayek and Buzas have to offer. Surveying Natural Populations is a welcome, noteworthy contribution to the ecology, conservation, and biostatiscal literature." Ecology

Synopsis:

A comprehensive introduction and handy methodological reference to the essential techniques of quantitative field ecology, or paleoecology, integrating the intuitive approach of the field researcher with the rational analytical tools of the statistician.
