The book describes and discusses the numerical methods which are successfully being used for analysing ecological data, using a clear and comprehensive approach. These methods are derived from the fields of mathematical physics, parametric and nonparametric statistics, information theory, numerical taxonomy, archaeology, psychometry, sociometry, econometry and others.

  • An updated, 3rd English edition of the most widely cited book on quantitative analysis of multivariate ecological data
  • Relates ecological questions to methods of statistical analysis, with a clear description of complex numerical methods
  • All methods are illustrated by examples from the ecological literature so that ecologists clearly see how to use the methods and approaches in their own research
  • All calculations are available in R language functions
