Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology: Analysis of by Marc Kery,J. Andrew Royle

By Marc Kery,J. Andrew Royle

Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology: Distribution, Abundance, Species Richness deals a brand new synthesis of the state of the art of hierarchical types for plant and animal distribution, abundance, and neighborhood features equivalent to species richness utilizing facts accumulated in metapopulation designs. these kinds of info are super frequent in ecology and its functions in such components as biodiversity tracking and fisheries and natural world administration.

This first volume explains static models/procedures within the context of hierarchical models that jointly signify a unified method of ecological study, taking the reader from layout, via facts assortment, and into analyses utilizing an important classification of versions. Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology, Volume 1 serves as an crucial handbook for practising box biologists, and as a graduate-level textual content for college students in ecology, conservation biology, fisheries/wildlife administration, and comparable fields.

  • Provides a synthesis of vital periods of types approximately distribution, abundance, and species richness whereas accommodating imperfect detection
  • Presents versions and techniques for choosing unmarked contributors and species
  • Written in a step by step procedure obtainable to non-statisticians and gives totally labored examples that function a template for readers' analyses
  • Includes spouse web site containing info units, code, suggestions to workouts, and additional information
