This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Known for its evolution theme and strong coverage of the relevance of ecology to everyday life and the human impact on ecosystems, the thoroughly revised Eighth Edition features expanded quantitative exercises, a restructured chapter on life history, a thoroughly revised species interactions unit including a chapter introducing the subject, and a new chapter on species interactions. To emphasize the dynamic and experimental nature of ecology, each chapter draws upon current research in the various fields of ecology while providing accessible examples that help you understand species natural history, specific ecosystems, the process of science, and ecological patterns at both an evolutionary and demographic scale. To engage you in using and interpreting data, a wide variety of Quantifying Ecology boxes walk through step-by-step examples of equations and statistical techniques.

Most ecology books and courses focus on the facts and the concepts. While these are essential, many young ecologists need to figure out how to actually do research themselves. How to Do Ecology provides nuts-and-bolts advice on how to develop a successful thesis and research program. This book presents different approaches to posing testable ecological questions. In particular, it covers the uses, strengths, and limitations of manipulative experiments in ecology. It will help young ecologists consider meaningful treatments, controls, replication, independence, and randomization in experiments, as well as where to do experiments and how to organize a season of work. This book also presents strategies for analyzing natural patterns, the value of alternative hypotheses, and what to do with negative results. Science is only part of being a successful ecologist. This engagingly written book offers students advice on working with other people and navigating their way through the land mines of research. Findings that don't get communicated are of little value. How to Do Ecology suggests effective ways to communicate information in the form of journal articles, oral presentations, and posters. Finally, it outlines strategies for developing successful grant and research proposals. Numerous checklists, figures, and boxes throughout the book summarize and reinforce the main points. In short, this book makes explicit many of the unspoken assumptions behind doing good research in ecology, and provides an invaluable resource for meaningful conversations among ecologists.

Each chapter explains a fundamental concept, and then gives three separate hands-on exercises that can involve outdoor observation and measurements on campus, laboratory systems, library research, biological collections, or computer resources. Additionally, calculation pages accompanying each lab walk readers through standard mathematical modeling or statistical tools commonly used by ecologists to address the question at hand, building readers' quantitative and critical thinking skills. All calculations and statistical analyses can be completed by readers using simple calculators. Key Topics: PREFACE: TEACHING AND LEARNING ECOLOGY IN A CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT, DESCRIBING A POPULATION, ALLOMETRIC RELATIONSHIPS, ESTIMATING POPULATION SIZE, POPULATION GROWTH, DEMOGRAPHY, POPULATION GENETICS, SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF POPULATIONS, THE NICHE, THE CONCEPT OF THE COMMUNITY, COMPETITION,PREDATION AND PARASITISM, MUTUALISM, BIODIVERSITY, ECOLOGICAL SUCCESSION, PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL ATTRIBUTES OF SOILS, AQUATIC SYSTEMS, ENERGY FLOW, ISLAND BIOGEOGRAPHY Market Description: For those interested in learning the basics of ecology on campus

R is a popular programming language that statisticians use to perform a variety of statistical computing tasks. Rooted in Gregg Hartvigsen's extensive experience teaching biology, this text is an engaging, practical, and lab-oriented introduction to R for students in the life sciences. Underscoring the importance of R and RStudio to the organization, computation, and visualization of biological statistics and data, Hartvigsen guides readers through the processes of entering data into R, working with data in R, and using R to express data in histograms, boxplots, barplots, scatterplots, before/after line plots, pie charts, and graphs. He covers data normality, outliers, and nonnormal data and examines frequently used statistical tests with one value and one sample; paired samples; more than two samples across a single factor; correlation; and linear regression. The volume also includes a section on advanced procedures and a final chapter on possible extensions into programming, featuring a discussion of algorithms, the art of looping, and combining programming and output.
