about

Bayesian statistics has exploded into biology and its sub-disciplines, such as ecology, over the past decade. The free software program WinBUGS, and its open-source sister OpenBugs, is currently the only flexible and general-purpose program available with which the average ecologist can conduct standard and non-standard Bayesian statistics.



  • Comprehensive and richly commented examples illustrate a wide range of models that are most relevant to the research of a modern population ecologist
  • All WinBUGS/OpenBUGS analyses are completely integrated in software R
  • Includes complete documentation ofallR and WinBUGS code required to conduct analyses and showsallthe necessary steps from having the data in a text file out of Excel to interpreting and processing the output from WinBUGS in R
Dr Kery is a Population Ecologist with the Swiss Ornithological Institute and a courtesy professor ("Privatdozent") at the University of Zürich/Switzerland, from where he received his PhD in Ecology in 2000. He is an expert in the estimation and modeling of abundance, distribution and species richness in "metapopulation designs" (i.e.,...
