2010-07-19T07:00:00Z Introduction to WinBUGS for Ecologists introduces applied Bayesian modeling to ecologists using the highly acclaimed, free WinBUGS software. It offers an understanding of statistical models as abstract representations of the various processes that give rise to a data set. Such an understanding is basic to the development of inference models tailored to specif...[Read More]

How have transitions from one energy source to another--from wood to coal, or from oil to solar to whatever comes next--transformed culture and society? What are the implications of uneven access to energy in the past, pres...[Read More]
2019-08-20T07:00:00Z Nearly one-third of the land area on our planet is classified as arid or desert. Therefore, an understanding of the dynamics of such arid ecosystems is essential to managing those systems in a way that sustains human populations. This second edition of Ecology of Desert Systems provides a clear, extensive guide to the complex interactions involved in these ar...[Read More]
