About the Author:

By David C. Schneider

Review:

"Quantitative Ecology is a worthwhile addition to the reference shelf, and will particularly speak to those coming from physical to environmental sciences. The author assumes very little prior knowledge of science or mathematics and introduces a wide range of terminology and notation using clear language and simple formulas. The text teaches students that com- plex environmental questions (e.g., global warming) are best approached using multiscale analysis. Students are walked through techniques for analyzing and ag- gregating data at a variety of scales and are encouraged to select appropriate ratio-scale units for such analyses. Students are also encouraged to think through the suitability of statistical techniques for a particular set of measurements, paying attention to the type of measurement, physical context, and dimension."--Quarterly Review of Biology, Volume 87, page 56
