An Introduction to Methods and Models in Ecology, Evolution, by Stanton Braude,Bobbi S. Low

By Stanton Braude,Bobbi S. Low

This precise textbook introduces undergraduate scholars to quantitative versions and strategies in ecology, behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation. It explores the middle recommendations shared via those similar fields utilizing instruments and functional abilities equivalent to experimental layout, producing phylogenies, easy statistical inference, and persuasive furnish writing. And individuals use examples from their very own state of the art learn, supplying varied perspectives to have interaction scholars and expand their understanding.

this is often the one textbook at the topic that includes a collaborative "active studying" strategy that emphasizes hands-on studying. each bankruptcy has routines that let scholars to paintings at once with the fabric at their very own speed and in small teams. each one challenge contains info provided in a wealthy array of codecs, which scholars use to reply to questions that illustrate styles, rules, and strategies. subject matters variety from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and inhabitants potent measurement to optimum foraging and indices of biodiversity. The publication additionally encompasses a accomplished glossary.

as well as the editors, the participants are James Beck, Cawas Behram Engineer, John Gaskin, Luke Harmon, Jon Hess, Jason Kolbe, Kenneth H. Kozak, Robert J. Robertson, Emily Silverman, Beth Sparks-Jackson, and Anton Weisstein.

  • Provides adventure with speculation trying out, experimental layout, and medical reasoning
  • Covers center quantitative versions and techniques in ecology, behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation
  • Turns "discussion sections" into "thinking labs"
