By Bobbi S. Low

This exact textbook introduces undergraduate scholars to quantitative types and strategies in ecology, behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation. It explores the center thoughts shared via those similar fields utilizing instruments and sensible talents akin to experimental layout, producing phylogenies, easy statistical inference, and persuasive supply writing. And members use examples from their very own state of the art examine, supplying varied perspectives to interact scholars and increase their understanding.

this can be the one textbook at the topic that includes a collaborative "active studying" strategy that emphasizes hands-on studying. each bankruptcy has routines that allow scholars to paintings without delay with the fabric at their very own velocity and in small teams. each one challenge contains information awarded in a wealthy array of codecs, which scholars use to respond to questions that illustrate styles, rules, and techniques. issues variety from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and inhabitants potent dimension to optimum foraging and indices of biodiversity. The ebook additionally incorporates a complete glossary.

as well as the editors, the individuals 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 event with speculation trying out, experimental layout, and medical reasoning
