Emphasizing the inductive nature of statistical thinking, Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition, connects applied statistics to the environmental and ecological fields. Using examples from published works in the ecological and environmental literature, the book explains the approach to solving a statistical problem, covering model specification, parameter estimation, and model evaluation. It includes many examples to illustrate the statistical methods and presents R code for their implementation. The emphasis is on model interpretation and assessment, and using several core examples throughout the book, the author illustrates the iterative nature of statistical inference.The book starts with a description of commonly used statistical assumptions and exploratory data analysis tools for the verification of these assumptions. It then focuses on the process of building suitable statistical models, including linear and nonlinear models, classification and regression trees, generalized linear models, and multilevel models. It also discusses the use of simulation for model checking, and provides tools for a critical assessment of the developed models. The second edition also includes a complete critique of a threshold model. Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition focuses on statistical modeling and data analysis for environmental and ecological problems. By guiding readers through the process of scientific problem solving and statistical model development, it eases the transition from scientific hypothesis to statistical model.

I was originally VERY skeptical because I’ve seen many sites that write fake reviews about themselves. But I took the risk of $15 and the site turns out to completely legitimate. As soon as my payment info went through, I got a download link and downloaded my book instantly. Definitely impressed by the low price as well considering Amazon had my book ‘Cengage Advantage Books: Introduction to Sociology” listed at $21 for an eBook rental. While now I own the book for only 15. Thanks again Janet and Panther Books team for your assistance and service provided you all definitely helped a graduating senior out.
