Title:Numerical Ecology with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Daniel Borcard

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Numerical Ecology with R provides a long-awaited bridge between a textbook in Numerical Ecology and the implementation of this discipline in the R language. After short theoretical overviews, the authors accompany the usersthrough the exploration of the methods by means of applied and extensively commented examples. Users are invited to use this book as a teaching companion at the computer. The travel starts with exploratory approaches, proceeds with theconstruction of associationmatrices, then addre sses three families of methods: clustering, unconstrained and canonical ordination,and spatial analysis. All the necessary data files, the scripts used in the chapters, as well as theextra R functions and packages written by the authors, can be downloaded from a web page accessible through the Springer web site(http://adn.biol.umontreal.ca/~numericalecology/numecolR/). This book is aimed at professionalresearchers, practitioners, graduate students and teachers in ecology, environmental science and enginee ring, and in related fields such as oceanography, molecular ecology, agriculture and soil science, who already have a background ingeneral and multivariate statistics and wish to apply this knowledge to their data using the R language, as well as people w illing to accompany their disciplinary learning with practical applications. People from other fields (e.g.geology, geography, paleoecology, phylogenetics, anthropology, the social and education sciences, etc.) may also benefit from the materials presente d in this book. The three authors teach numerical ecology, both theoretical andpractical, to a wide array of audiences, in regular courses in their Universities and in short courses given around the world. Daniel Borcard is lecturer of Biostatistics and E cology and researcher in Numerical Ecology at Universitde Montral, Qubec, Canada. Franois Gillet is professor of Community Ecology and Ecological Modelling at Universit de Franche-Comt,

Title:Forest Analytics with R [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Andrew P Robinson
Jeff D Hamann
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Forest Analytics with R combines practical, down-to-earth forestry data analysis and solutions to real forest management challenges with state-of-the-art statistical and data-handling functionality. The authors adopt aproblem-driven approach, in whic h statistical and mathematical tools are introduced in the context of the forestry problem that they can help to resolve. All the tools are introduced in the context of real forestry datasets, whichprovide compelling examples of practical applications. Th e modeling challenges covered within the book include imputation and interpolation for spatial data, fitting probability density functions to tree measurement data using maximumlikelihood, fitting allometric functions using both linear and non-linear leas t-squares regression, and fitting growth models using both linear and non-linear mixed-effects modeling. The coverage also includes deploying and usingforest growth models written in compiled languages, analysis of natural resources and forestry inventory data, and forest estate planning and optimization using linear programming. The book would be ideal for a one-semester class inforest biometrics or applied statistics for natural resources management. The text assumes no programming background, some intr oductory statistics, and very basic applied mathematics. Andrew Robinson has been associate professor offorest mensuration and forest biometrics at the University of Idaho, and is currently senior lecturer in applied statistics at the University of Melbou rne. He received his PhD in forestry from the University of Minnesota. Robinson isauthor of the popular and freely-available icebreakeR document. Jeff Hamann has been a software developer, forester, and financial analyst. He is currently a consultant spec ializing in forestry, operations research, and geographicinformation sciences. He received his PhD in forestry from Oregon State University. Both authors have presented numerous R workshops to forestr

Title:geoENV VII Geostatistics for Environmental Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): P. M Atkinson
C. D Lloyd
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume brings together selected contributions from geoENV 2008, the 7th International Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, held in Southampton, UK, in September 2008. This book presents thestate-of-the-art in geostatistics for the environmental sciences. It includes a wide range of methodological advances and applications. It offers insight and guidance for researchers, professionals, graduate students and others seekinginformation on the latest perspectives in the field. The rich body of applications will enable those new to geostatistics to assess the utility of the methods for their own applications. The book includes 35 chapters on topics asdiverse as methodological developments, applications in the soil sciences, clim atology, pollution, health, wildlife mapping, fisheries and remote sensing, amongst other areas. With its focus on environmental applications ofgeostatistics, rather than the more traditional geostatistical remit of mining and petroleum exploration, this book is part of a series that presents an invaluable resource. This book will be a first port of call for those who wish toapply geostatistical methods in the environmental sciences. Audience: Researchers, scientists, professionals, institutes, libraries, graduate students of geosciences, geostatistics, spatial statistics, environmental science andengineering, ecology, oceanography, climatology, hydrology, soil and forestry science

Title:Nonlinear Regression with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Christian Ritz
Jens Carl Streibig
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:R is a rapidly evolving lingua franca of graphical display and statistical analysis of experiments from the applied sciences. Currently, R offers a wide range of functionality for nonlinear regression analysis, but the relevantfunctions, packages and documentation are scattered across the R environment. This book provides a coherent and unified treatment of nonlinear regression with R by means of examples from a diversity of applied sciences such as biology,chemistry, engineering, medicine and toxico logy. The book begins with an introduction on how to fit nonlinear regression models in R. Subsequent chapters explain in more depth the salient features of the fitting function nls(), the useof model diagnostics, the remedies for various model departures , and how to do hypothesis testing. In the final chapter grouped-data structures, including an example of a nonlinear mixed-effects regression model, are considered.Christian Ritz has a PhD in biostatistics from the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural Unive rsity. For the last 5 years he has been working extensively with various applications of nonlinear regression in the life sciences and relateddisciplines, authoring several R packages and papers on this topic. He is currently doing postdoctoral research a t the University of Copenhagen. Jens C. Streibig is a professor in Weed Science at the University of Copenhagen. He hasfor more than 25 years worked on selectivity of herbicides and more recently on the ecotoxicology of pesticides and has extensive experi ence in applying nonlinear regression models. Together with the first author he has developed shortcourses on the subject of this book for students in the life sciences
