9780444538680: Numerical Ecology, Volume 24, Third Edition (Developments in Environmental Modelling)

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

From the Back Cover:

The third English edition of Numerical Ecology is a timely update to the authoritative reference work that describes and discusses the numerical methods used in fundamental and applied research for analysing ecological data.

Authored by researchers who have contributed to many of the recent advances in the field, this edition includes newly-developed knowledge and up-to-date references about advanced numerical methods used to analyse large data sets. It also introduces the new paradigm that temporal and spatial structures observed in multi-species assemblages reflect environmental and community-based processes that control the generation and maintenance of biodiversity in ecosystems. Numerical Ecology remains the essential reference for ecologists who conduct quantitative analyses of ecological and environmental data, and who study community composition data.

This book features:

  • An emphasis on multi-scale analysis, allowing researchers to investigate modern ecological problems, such as the effects of climate change on natural communities.
  • Detailed references to R software, now used by most numerical ecologists for the analysis of human effects on natural communities.
  • Real ecological examples to illustrate all theoretical and methodological developments discussed in the book.

Review:

"Pierre Legendre...and Louis Legendre... present this text of data analysis methods for ecologists, with an emphasis on use of the statistical computer language R. The book begins by articulating salient points about ecological data in particular, such as the many functional correlations that must be adjusted for without ascribing as-yet-unexplained variation to random noise, then covers the mathematical foundations of matrix algebra and dimensional analysis."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 "What I really love about this book is that for most methods the formulae are given. Thus, we learn the statistical rea-soning, the mathematics and the ecological interpretation...Numerical Ecology is a definite must-have for any quanti-tative ecologist."--Basic and Applied Ecology, December 2013
