Reviews


?The book provides case studies illustrating common problems that exist in natural resource sciences, and presents the statistical knowledge and tools needed for a modem treatment of these issues.? (APADE, 2009)

"The book's strength lie in the choice of material, the explication of methods and use, and detail of the code provided ? The bottom line is this book is useful.  It is designated not merely to give you a sense of these often-neglected statistical methods but to get you up and running on them.  It does a phenomenal job of that task." (Ecology, November 2008)

"Stauffer's book seems very suitable for second statistics on modern regression modeling focusing on Bayesian thinking." (Journal of the American Statistician, December 2008)

"Stauffer's book seems very suitable for second statistics on modern regression modeling focusing on Bayesian thinking." (Journal of the American Statistician, Dec 2008)

"This is an excellent book presenting difficult statistical ideals by using data obtained from real-life situations." (CHOICE May 2008)

"An ideal text for natural resource students studying statistical research methods at the upper-undergraduate or graduate level and also service as a valuable problem-solving guide." (Mathematical Reviews 2008)
