Introduction to Forestry and Natural Resources
Introduction to Forestry and Natural Resources

Introduction to Forestry and Natural Resources presents a broad overview of the profession of forestry. The book details several key fields within forestry, including forest health, economics, policy, utilization, and forestry careers. Chapters deal specifically with forest products and harvesting, recreation, wildlife habitats, tree...

Plant Growth and Climate
Plant Growth and Climate

Evidence grows daily of the changing climate and its impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales, the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and so directly influences physiological processes. At larger scales,...

Case Studies in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis
Case Studies in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis

Provides an accessible foundation to Bayesian analysis using real world models

This book aims to present an introduction to Bayesian modelling and computation, by considering real case studies drawn from diverse fields spanning ecology, health, genetics and finance. Each chapter comprises a description of the problem, the...

Mites: Ecology, Evolution & Behaviour: Life at a Microscale
Mites: Ecology, Evolution & Behaviour: Life at a Microscale

More than 40,000 species of mites have been described, and up to 1 million may exist on earth. These tiny arachnids play many ecological roles including acting as vectors of disease, vital players in soil formation, and important agents of biological control. But despite the grand diversity of mites, even trained biologists are often unaware...

The Physics of Foraging: An Introduction to Random Searches and Biological Encounters
The Physics of Foraging: An Introduction to Random Searches and Biological Encounters

Do the movements of animals, including humans, follow patterns that can be described quantitatively by simple laws of motion? If so, then why? These questions have attracted the attention of scientists in many disciplines, and stimulated debates ranging from ecological matters to queries such as 'how can there be free will if one follows...

Science in the Age of Computer Simulation
Science in the Age of Computer Simulation

Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer...

Indra's Net and the Midas Touch: Living Sustainably in a Connected World
Indra's Net and the Midas Touch: Living Sustainably in a Connected World

We live today in a global web of interdependence, connected technologically, economically, politically, and socially. As a result of these expanding and deepening interdependencies, it has become impossible fully to control -- or foretell -- the effects of our actions. The world is rife with unintended consequences. The first law of human...

Pheromones and Animal Behavior: Chemical Signals and Signatures
Pheromones and Animal Behavior: Chemical Signals and Signatures

Pheromones and other kinds of chemical communication underlie the behavior of all animals. Building on the strengths of the first edition, widely recognized as the leading text in the subject, this is a comprehensive overview of how pheromones work. Extensively revised and expanded to cover advances made over the last ten years, the book...

Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems
Ecological Connectivity among Tropical Coastal Ecosystems

Mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and coral reefs are circumtropical ecosystems that are highly productive, and provide many important biological functions and economic services. These ecosystems cover large surface areas in the shallow tropical coastal seascape but have suffered from serious human degradation, especially in the last few decades....

A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)
A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)
A comprehensive, must-have handbook of matrix methods with a unique emphasis on statistical applications

This timely book, A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians, provides a comprehensive, encyclopedic treatment of matrices as they relate to both statistical concepts and methodologies. Written by an experienced authority on matrices and...

The Optics of Life: A Biologist's Guide to Light in Nature
The Optics of Life: A Biologist's Guide to Light in Nature

Optics--a field of physics focusing on the study of light--is also central to many areas of biology, including vision, ecology, botany, animal behavior, neurobiology, and molecular biology. The Optics of Life introduces the fundamentals of optics to biologists and nonphysicists, giving them the tools they need to successfully incorporate...

Big Questions in Ecology and Evolution (Oxford Biology)
Big Questions in Ecology and Evolution (Oxford Biology)
Why do we age? Why cooperate? Why do so many species engage in sex? Why do the tropics have so many species? When did humans start to affect world climate?

This book provides an introduction to a range of fundamental questions that have taxed evolutionary biologists and ecologists for decades. Some of the phenomena discussed are, on
