Models for Ecological Data:
An Introduction
James S. Clark

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

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Clark's book is monumental--I don't think there is any other source that provides this range of sources and methods. He presents a huge amount of useful material, focusing on the development and application of Bayesian hierarchical models for the analysis of ecological and environmental models. It's hard to imagine finding such a collection of information--the results of extensive experience with recent ecological, environmental, and statistical literature--in one place. And I heartily agree with the author's philosophical stances on simplicity and complexity, statistical pragmatism, and the need for common sense."--Benjamin Bolker, University of Florida

"I strongly believe that this is potentially a landmark book in ecology. Its integration of modern statistical methods and ecological theory and data is fundamentally new. The book will train ecologists and other quantitative scientists in the 'new modeling techniques' that are becoming ever more prevalent in their field. In particular, the book describes how one should deal with complicated problems in which there is uncertainty in data, model, and parameters. James Clark does a wonderful job of integrating modern likelihood-based statistical methods as well as describing and demonstrating the advantages of the Bayesian approach."--Christopher K. Wikle, University of Missouri, Columbia
