Edited by Stanton Braude & Bobbi S. Low

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 9 [PDF only] | Chapter 12 [PDF only]


"The most enjoyable aspect of this book is that it is a true teaching guide. The authors expose students to quantitative methods using a very hands-on approach. This approach ensures students feel more comfortable with data analysis and quantitative methods, while also aiding them to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. A wealth of personal experience as a student and teacher has obviously gone into the creation of this book, and I would highly recommend it to educators dealing with components of this text"--.Brad J. Farmilo, Austral Ecology


"Braude and Low combine approaches and methodologies from ecology, evolution, and behavior, and emphasize quantitative exercises. Most other books that I'm familiar with are largely focused on either ecology or evolution. It makes sense to me to combine all of this material under a single cover. I can't think of another book like this one."--Jonathan Shurin, University of British Columbia

"A very worthwhile contribution. The authors expose students to quantitative methods using a very hands-on approach. The exercises increase students' comfort with data analysis and quantitative methods while also helping them to develop independent critical thinking and practical problem-solving skills. I do not know of any other textbook that offers this approach in evolution and ecology."--Suzanne H. Alonzo, Yale University

"This book is designed to teach basic ecological methods to undergraduates using a series of interactive exercises. It promotes real learning as opposed to memorization. It is a significant contribution to the field."--Susan L. Keen, University of California, Davis

"This is an interesting and even entertaining book of lab and field exercises that represent a wealth of personal experience in teaching the essentials of ecology and evolutionary theory, as well as the basics of the scientific method, study design, and analysis. The book includes many gems."--David K. Skelly, Yale University
