Ecological Models and Data in R by Benjamin M. Bolker

By Benjamin M. Bolker

Ecological types and information in R is the 1st actually functional advent to fashionable statistical equipment for ecology. In step by step element, the publication teaches ecology graduate scholars and researchers every thing they should recognize so that it will use greatest chance, information-theoretic, and Bayesian suggestions to investigate their very own info utilizing the programming language R. Drawing on huge event educating those ideas to graduate scholars in ecology, Benjamin Bolker indicates how you can decide upon between and build statistical types for information, estimate their parameters and self assurance limits, and interpret the consequences. The booklet additionally covers statistical frameworks, the philosophy of statistical modeling, and important mathematical capabilities and likelihood distributions. It calls for no programming background--only simple calculus and statistics.

  • Practical, beginner-friendly creation to trendy statistical suggestions for ecology utilizing the programming language R
  • Step-by-step directions for becoming types to messy, real-world info
  • Balanced view of alternative statistical ways
  • Wide insurance of techniques--from easy (distribution becoming) to complicated (state-space modeling)
  • Techniques for information manipulation and graphical show
  • Companion site with facts and R code for all examples
