More About This Textbook

Overview

A core or complementary textbook for graduate or undergraduate students of biology and ecology who have already had a minimal introduction to statistics. Rather than a set of recipes or exercises tied to a particular software package, it deals with basic and advanced topics in statistics that are important specifically for ecologists and environmental scientists.
