Produktbeschreibung
Quantitative methods specifically tailored for the marinebiologist While there are countless texts published on quantitative methodsand many texts that cover quantitative terrestrial ecology, thistext fills the need for the special quantitative problemsconfronting marine biologists and biological oceanographers. Theauthor combines common quantitative techniques with recent advancesin quantitative methodology and then demonstrates how thesetechniques can be used to study marine organisms, their behaviors,and their interactions with the environment. Readers learn how tobetter design experiments and sampling, employ sophisticatedmathematical techniques, and accurately interpret and communicatethe results. Most of this text is written at an introductory level, with a fewtopics that advance to more complex themes. Among the topicscovered are plot/plotless sampling, biometrics, experimentaldesign, game theory, optimization, time trends, modeling, andenvironmental impact assessments. Even readers new to quantitative methods will find the materialaccessible, with plenty of features to engage their interest,promote learning, and put their knowledge into practice: * One or more examples are provided to illustrate each individualquantitative technique presented in the text * The accompanying CD-ROM features two multimedia programs, severalstatistical programs, help to run complex statistical programs, andadditional information amplifying topics covered in the text * References lead readers to additional information to pursueindividual topics in greater depth Quantitative Analysis of Marine Biological Communities, with itsextensive use of examples, is ideal for undergraduate and graduatestudents in marine biology. Marine biologists, regardless of theirlevel of experience, will also discover new approaches toquantitative analysis tailored to the particular needs of theirfield.

Rezensionen
"This book assists with this decision making process by providing an overview of a wide range of sampling and analytical methodologies used in marine biological studies, and indeed in other ecosystems". (The Geographical Journal, 1 March 2010) "The book is most appropriate for...students" ( The Quarterly Review of Biology )
