Ecological research and the way that ecologists use statistics continues to change rapidly. This second edition of the best-selling Design and Analysis of Ecological Experiments leads these trends with an update of this now-standard reference book, with a discussion of the latest developmentsin experimental ecology and statistical practice.The goal of this volume is to encourage the correct use of some of the more well known statistical techniques and to make some of the less well known but potentially very useful techniques available. Chapters from the first edition have been substantially revised and new chapters have been added.Readers are introduced to statistical techniques that may be unfamiliar to many ecologists, including power analysis, logistic regression, randomization tests and empirical Bayesian analysis. In addition, a strong foundation is laid in more established statistical techniques in ecology includingexploratory data analysis, spatial statistics, path analysis and meta-analysis. Each technique is presented in the context of resolving an ecological issue. Anyone from graduate students to established research ecologists will find a great deal of new practical and useful information in this currentedition.

Editorial Reviews

"The 18 chapters in this graduate textbook on advanced statistical techniques for ecologists describe such methods as power analysis, logistic regression, randomization tests, and empirical Bayesian analysis. The second edition reflects changes in statistical theory, and computer software andhardware capabilities."--SciTech Book News
