How to Do Ecology:
A Concise Handbook
Richard Karban & Mikaela Huntzinger

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Almost all graduate students in ecology will take away something valuable from reading How to Do Ecology. Karban and Huntzinger cover a wide range of topics: how to formulate research questions, why to get a field notebook and what to put in it, how and why to incorporate observations, experiments, and models in your dissertation, how to give a seminar on your work and get your results published. Reading this book feels like having a good talk during a long walk in the woods with a wise and experienced advisor who really has the time to distill and share years of thinking about how ecological research works. Get it, and keep it handy, and your work will be the richer and more successful for it."--Jessica Gurevitch, Stony Brook University

"How to Do Ecology may save years of grief and buckets of sweat for ecologists at the beginning of their careers. It puts into words lessons that are usually only learned the hard way. The authors outline the balances and trade-offs that go into designing a successful research program and provide practical advice for achieving long-term goals in ecology."--Jonathan Shurin, University of British Columbia
