This coherent text translates the methods of statisticians into "ecological English" so that students may readily apply these methods to the real world. Ecological Methodology, Second Edition provides a balance of material on animal and plant populations. It teaches students of ecology how to design the most efficient tests in order to obtain maximum precision with minimal work. The first part of the text focuses on biological and technical issues in statistical methodology. Students learn about advances that have been made in designing better sampling devices, along with the techniques and equipment used for sampling. The second part deals with creating solid statistical design, and presents all methods that are well-known to statisticians in a language and context that students will easily understand.

(1985a) have proposed a goodness-of-fit test for the Jolly-Seber model that
compares the observed and expected numbers of individuals captured with each
possible capture history. They provide a computer program to do these tests,
Given the matrix of 0's and 1's, it is possible to use probability theory to ask how
these should be arranged under several different models of capture behavior.
The simplest model is the null model, in which the captures occur completely at ...
For the Gulf of St. Lawrence subpopulation, they captured 65 genetically distinct
individuals, and over 5 sampling periods they tallied 86 sightings (sampling with
replacement). To illustrate how Program CAPTURE calculates a population ...
