Title:Numerical Ecology with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Daniel Borcard
Francois Gillet
Pierre Legendre
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:Spatial Statistics and Modeling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Carlo Gaetan
Xavier Guyon
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Spatial statistics are useful in subjects as diverse as climatology, ecology, economics, environmental and earth sciences, epidemiology, image analysis and more. This book covers the best-known spatial models for three types ofspatial data: geostatis tical data (stationarity, intrinsic models, variograms, spatial regression and space-time models), areal data (Gibbs-Markov fields and spatial auto-regression) and point pattern data (Poisson, Cox, Gibbs andMarkov point processes). The level is relatively advanced, and the presentation concise but complete. The most important statistical methods and their asymptotic properties are described, including estimation in geostatistics,autocorrelation and second-order statistics, maximum likelihood methods, appr oximate inference using the pseudo-likelihood or Monte-Carlo simulations, statistics for point processes and Bayesian hierarchical models. A chapter isdevoted to Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation (Gibbs sampler, Metropolis-Hastings algorithms and exact simulation). A large number of real examples are studied with R, and each chapter ends with a set of theoretical and appliedexercises. While a foundation in probability and mathematical statistics is assumed, three appendices introduce some necessary back ground. The book is accessible to senior undergraduate students with a solid math background and Ph.D.students in statistics. Furthermore, experienced statisticians and researchers in the above-mentioned fields will find the book valuable as a mathematica lly sound reference. This book is the English translation of Modlisation etStatistique Spatiales published by Springer in the series Mathmatiques & Applications, a series established by Socit de Mathmatiques Appliques et Industrielles (SMAI). Carlo Gaetan is Associate Professor of Statistics in theDepartment of Statistics at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice. Xavier Guyon is Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris 1 Panthon-Sorbon
