Abstract

This book presents some of the statistical difficulties that behavioral ecologists face in their research. It covers a wide range of topics relevant to ecological research, including survey sampling methods, regression, pseudoreplication, behavioral sampling, monitoring abundance, capture-recapture methods, survivorship estimation and resource selection. The authors view this book as a supplement to introductory statistics courses; their goal is for behavioral ecologists to find the book relevant, and for statisticians to find it rigorous. Although they are somewhat successful in their first goal, they fall short of the second.
