Kernel Smoothing: Principles, Methods and Applications
Kernel Smoothing: Principles, Methods and Applications

Comprehensive theoretical overview of kernel smoothing methods with motivating examples

Kernel smoothing is a flexible nonparametric curve estimation method that is applicable when parametric descriptions of the data are not sufficiently adequate. This book explores theory and methods of kernel smoothing in a variety of...

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...

Spatial AutoRegression (SAR) Model: Parameter Estimation Techniques (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)
Spatial AutoRegression (SAR) Model: Parameter Estimation Techniques (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science)
Explosive growth in the size of spatial databases has highlighted the need for spatial data analysis and spatial data mining techniques to mine the interesting but implicit spatial patterns within these large databases. Extracting useful and interesting patterns from massive geo-spatial datasets is important for many application...
Statistics and Data with R: An applied approach through examples
Statistics and Data with R: An applied approach through examples
R, an Open Source software, has become the de facto statistical computing environment. It has an excellent collection of data manipulation and graphics capabilities. It is extensible and comes with a large number of packages that allow statistical analysis at all levels – from simple to advanced – and in numerous fields...
Bayesian Networks: A Practical Guide to Applications (Statistics in Practice)
Bayesian Networks: A Practical Guide to Applications (Statistics in Practice)

Bayesian Networks, the result of the convergence of artificial intelligence with statistics, are growing in popularity. Their versatility and modelling power is now employed across a variety of fields for the purposes of analysis, simulation, prediction and diagnosis.

This book provides a general introduction to Bayesian networks,...

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...

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....
