Overview

Sampling Design and Statistical Methods for Environmental Biologists / Edition 1

Provides—in an organized and compact source—a comprehensive guide to the principles of sampling design and statistical analysis methods. Reviews the principles of inference, sampling and statistical design, and hypothesis formulation, all with special reference to ecological data. Includes an impact study illustrating the principles presented. Contains a key to five broad categories of environmental studies—as well as examples and examines specific topics that apply to any environmental study. Provides a comprehensive bibliography which is cross-referenced to the text and keyed to a specific topic code (types of methods and environments studied).
