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.

Collect useful data and you have jumped the first hurdle of ecological research.
But how do you know what data are useful? It is a mistake to think that statistical
analysis by itself will give you any crisp insight into what data you should be ...
We all wish to have our ecological studies recognized as important contributions
to ecological understanding. This desire can lead us into one of the most
common traps in modern science: using statistical tests of significance as a
measure of ...
