Resource Selection by Animals: Statistical design and analysis for field studies


Add your own review!

Overview

The current literature on resource selection by animals is a maze of methodologies for data collection and interpretation. Field biologists are crying out for a guide through the labyrinth. This book aims to provide such a guide. It aims to give a clear and consistent framework for the study of how animals select their resources (food and habitat) by taking the reader through different types of study design. It is a valuable handbook for the field biologist, especially those concerned with the management and conservation of wildlife. The authors have clearly identified the need to pull together the diffuse literature, and biologists should improve their experimental design, methodology and analysis with this book This book should be of interest to population biologists, ecologists, wildlife managers, conservation biologists, fisheries managers and biostatisticians.

Bryan Manly has more experience than most in guiding the unwary biologist through unchartered statistical territory...this book will prove enlightening to the mathematically-minded biologist...' Biodiversity and Conservation The authors...consider with a lot of care various types of design allowing to assess to which degree a resource is selected, with reference to its availability... Classification is illustrated with a few detailed examples from the literature, for which data are given. These examples are followed throughout the book, which makes the reading easy and pleasant...This book certainly meets its subtitle by giving a thorough and comprehensive overview of 'statistical design and analysis for field studies' of resource selection.'
