9780128013700: Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and Stan

Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN introduces the Bayesian and frequentist methods of conducting data analyses. The book provides the theoretical background in an easy to understand way and it encourages the reader to think about the processes that generated their data. Model selection and multi-model inference are discussed and effort is made to create effect plots that allow a much more natural interpretation of the data rather than simple parameter estimates. Model checking by graphical analysis and by posterior predictive checking is also discussed.

Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN encourages readers to think about the processes that generated their data and to build models that reflect these processes as close as possible. Therefore, the Bayesian software, BUGS, JAGS, STAN and LaplacesDemon are introduced. This book guides the reader from easy towards more complex (real) data analyses, step by step. The problems and solutions, including all R codes, presented in the book are most often replicable to other data and questions. Thus, this book can be used continually as a resource for all sorts of questions and field data collected.

  • Offers Bayesian data analysis, allowing users to obtain uncertainty measurements easily for any derived parameter of interest
  • Written in a step-by-step approach, which is accessible to non-statisticians
  • Includes companion website containing R-code to help users conduct Bayesian data analyses on their own data

Product Description:

Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN examines the Bayesian and frequentist methods of conducting data analyses. The book provides the theoretical background in an easy-to-understand approach, encouraging readers to examine the processes that generated their data. Including discussions of model selection, model checking, and multi-model inference, the book also uses effect plots that allow a natural interpretation of data. Bayesian Data Analysis in Ecology Using Linear Models with R, BUGS, and STAN introduces Bayesian software, using R for the simple modes, and flexible Bayesian software (BUGS and Stan) for the more complicated ones. Guiding the ready from easy toward more complex (real) data analyses ina step-by-step manner, the book presents problems and solutions-including all R codes-that are most often applicable to other data and questions, making it an invaluable resource for analyzing a variety of data types.

    • Introduces Bayesian data analysis, allowing users to obtain uncertainty measurements easily for any derived parameter of interest
    • Written in a step-by-step approach that allows for eased understanding by non-statisticians
    • Includes a companion website containing R-code to help users conduct Bayesian data analyses on their own data

    Tobias Roth is a postdoc at the University of Basel where he teaches masters level courses in statistics for ecology and biology students. In addition, Dr. Tobias Roth is co-owner and project manager at Hintermann & Weber AG, where he is responsible for data analyses and develops analytical methods for biodiversity monitoring programs.

    Stefanie von Felten has a PhD in Plant Ecology and a diploma of advanced studies in statistics. Since 2010 she works as statistician at the University Hospital Basel where she is involved in planning, analysis and publication of clinical studies. In addition, Dr. von Felten is a statistical consultant for oikostat GmbH. She has been teaching statistics in several courses for Master and PhD students at various academic institutions and for doctors and other health personnel at the Hospital.

    Jérôme Guélat has been leading the GIS team at the Swiss Ornithological Institute for more than 6 years. He uses spatial statistics to provide guidance to applied conservation problems. He also teaches a short course on spatial and Bayesian statistics.

    Bettina Almasi has a PhD in eco-physiology and ecology from the University of Zurich and a post-diploma course in applied statistics from the ETH Zurich. Dr. Almasi conducts research in stress physiology and behavioural ecology at the Swiss Ornithological Institute and works part-time as a statistical consultant at oikostat GmbH

    Pius Korner-Nievergelt has a PhD in ecology, conservation biology and a post-diploma course in applied statistics both from ETH Zurich. Dr. Korner-Nievergelt works as a statistician at oikostat GmbH as well as at the Swiss Ornithological Institute for data analyses, mainly regarding ecological questions.
