Exeter: Pelagic Publishing, 2012. Octavo, paperback, black and white illustrations.
This book details how the scientific process is applied to data in ecology. This book gives detailed information on how to plan for data collection, assemble data, analyse data and finally how to present the results. The book uses Microsoft Excel and the powerful Open Source R program to carry out data handling as well as producing graphs. Students of ecology and environmental science will find this book aimed at them although many other scientists will find the text useful as the principles and data analysis are the same in many disciplines. No prior knowledge is assumed and the reader can develop their skills up to degree level and beyond. Also available in hardcover [stock id 34490].
