Environmental and ecological statistics with R

By: Qian, Song S.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Chapman and Hall/CRC Press Applied Environmental Statistics.Publisher: Boca Raton CRC Press Taylor and Francis Group 2017Edition: 2nd.Description: xxiii, 535 p.ISBN: 9781498728720.Subject(s): Environmental sciences - statistical methods | Ecology - statistical methods | R - Computer program language | Big DataDDC classification: 550.2855133 Summary: Emphasizing the inductive nature of statistical thinking, Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition, connects applied statistics to the environmental and ecological fields. Using examples from published works in the ecological and environmental literature, the book explains the approach to solving a statistical problem, covering model specification, parameter estimation, and model evaluation. It includes many examples to illustrate the statistical methods and presents R code for their implementation. The emphasis is on model interpretation and assessment, and using several core examples throughout the book, the author illustrates the iterative nature of statistical inference. The book starts with a description of commonly used statistical assumptions and exploratory data analysis tools for the verification of these assumptions. It then focuses on the process of building suitable statistical models, including linear and nonlinear models, classification and regression trees, generalized linear models, and multilevel models. It also discusses the use of simulation for model checking, and provides tools for a critical assessment of the developed models. The second edition also includes a complete critique of a threshold model. Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition focuses on statistical modeling and data analysis for environmental and ecological problems. By guiding readers through the process of scientific problem solving and statistical model development, it eases the transition from scientific hypothesis to statistical model. https://www.crcpress.com/Environmental-and-Ecological-Statistics-with-R-Second-Edition/Qian/p/book/9781498728720
