About this title A Primer of Ecological Statistics, Second Edition, explains fundamental material in probability theory, experimental design, and parameter estimation for ecologists and environmental scientists. The book emphasizes a general introduction to probability theory and provides a detailed discussion of specific designs and analyses that are typically encountered in ecology and environmental science.

Appropriate for use as either a stand-alone or supplementary text for upper-division undergraduate or graduate courses in ecological and environmental statistics, ecology, environmental science, environmental studies, or experimental design, the Primer also serves as a resource for environmental professionals who need to use and interpret statistics daily but have little or no formal training in the subject.

The book is divided into four parts. Part I discusses the fundamentals of probability and statistical thinking. It introduces the logic and language of probability Chapter 1 , explains common statistical distributions used in ecology Chapter 2 and important measures of central tendency and spread Chapter 3 , explains P-values, hypothesis testing, and statistical errors Chapter 4 , and introduces frequentist, Bayesian, and Monte Carlo methods of analysis Chapter 5. Part II discusses how to successfully design and execute field experiments and sampling studies.

Topics include design strategies Chapter 6 , a "bestiary" of experimental designs Chapter 7 , and transformations and data management Chapter 8. Part III discusses specific analyses, and covers the material that is the main core of most statistics texts. Topics include regression Chapter 9 , analysis of variance Chapter 10 , categorical data analysis Chapter 11 , and multivariate analysis Chapter Part IV--new to this edition--discusses two central topics in estimating important ecological metrics.

Topics include quantification of biological diversity Chapter 13 and estimating occupancy, detection probability, and population sizes from marked and unmarked populations Chapter The book includes a comprehensive glossary, a mathematical appendix on matrix algebra, and extensively annotated tables and figures. For Students Data files and code used for some of the examples are available on the companion website. All have been formatted and optimized for excellent projection quality.

Also included are ready-to-use PowerPoint slides of all figures and tables. About the Author: Nicholas J. He graduated with a B.

Ellison, Elizabeth J. Farnsworth, and Gary D. Alpert; , and EcoSim, an ecological software package. His research interests include: the evolutionary ecology of carnivorous plants, heat shock proteins and the responses of ant assemblages to climate change, environmental proteomics, biogeography, and statistical ecology. Aaron M. He received a B. Gotelli, Elizabeth J. Alpert; His research foci include: food web dynamics, community ecology of wetlands and forests, evolutionary ecology of carnivorous plants, and the application of Bayesian inference to ecological research and environmental decision-making.

Ellison is the Editor-in-Chief of Ecological Monographs. Review: "Things that set this volume apart from the ordinary include short discussions of more advanced methods at the end of most chapters, a full chapter on data management, two chapters on study design, and wonderful footnotes with historical notes and short biographies.

I have found this book, aided by the very easy writing style of the authors, is equally well received by graduate and undergraduate students as a textbook in courses on ecological analyses, particularly when used as a bridge to more advanced books on specific topics.
