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.

For example, it may be very easy to mark individuals, but very difficult to
recapture large samples. In this situation in Example 2, we might decide to ...
Animals do not lose marks between the two sampling periods. 5. All marks are
reported upon ...
But in the third sample marked animals may have been last caught at time 2 (15)
or time 1 (1). Marked individuals may thus evade capture for one or more
sampling periods. In an intensive mark-recapture program, most of the marked
ecologists, a general description of the procedures used and some sample data
runs are given in White et al. (1982). ... 1978, 105). The null model Mo has a
simple form when there are only two sampling periods (as in a Petersen sample).
