Summary

Designed for juniors and seniors, this one-semester laboratory manual is based on mathematical statistics. This new edition provides a wide range of topics for investigation. Author George Cox begins with exercises covering library research, designing an ecological study, and other introductory concepts. He then proceeds to an examination of specific types of measurement and an analysis of various aspects of ecology. Many of these laboratories are tied to current, commercially-available computer programs and software packages.
