Overview

The use of appropriate statistical methods is essential when working with environmental data. Yet, many environmental professionals are not statisticians. A ready reference guide to the most common methods used in environmental applications, Statistics for Environmental Science and Management introduces the statistical methods most frequently used by environmental scientists, managers, and students.

Using a non-mathematical approach, the author describes techniques such as: environmental monitoring, impact assessment, assessing site reclamation, censored data, and Monte Carlo risk assessment, as well as the key topics of time series and spatial data. The book shows the strengths of different types of conclusions available from statistical analyses. It contains internet sources of information that give readers access to the latest information on specific topics.

The author's easy to understand style makes the subject matter accessible to anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the basics of statistics while emphasizing how the techniques are applied in the environmental field. Clearly and copiously illustrated with line drawings and tables, Statistics for Environmental Science and Management covers all the statistical methods used with environmental applications and is suitable as a text for graduate students in the environmental science area.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For environmental scientists and managers who have already taken a course or read a book on basic methods of statistics covering the ideas of random variation, statistical distributions, tests of significance, and confidence intervals, Manly (statistics, U. of Otago, New Zealand) introduces the statistical methods that will be useful in their work. He does, however, review that basic statistics for those who studied them long ago. The study would also be suitable for a statistics course for graduate students in the environmental sciences.
