Mixed Effects Models and Extensions in Ecology with R / Edition 1by Alain Zuur, Elena N. Ieno, Neil Walker, Anatoly A. Saveliev
Pub. Date: 04/06/2011
Publisher: Springer New York
This book discusses advanced statistical methods that can be used to analyse ecological data. Most environmental collected data are measured repeatedly over time, or space and this requires the use of GLMM or GAMM methods. The book starts by revising regression, additive modelling, GAM and GLM, and then discusses dealing with spatial or temporal dependencies and nested data.
