Ecology -- Study and teaching, Ecology -- Handbooks
This problem book has many objectives:
- To get you to think about the course each night: do not wait until the last minute to begin working on the problems.
- To get you to deal with data. Statistics courses that you take in the future will be more meaningful once you understand the kinds of data that arise in ecological studies.
- To get you to be more comfortable with theoretical and quantitative methods. Not every ecologist uses those methods, but one should not be put off by them.
- To familiarize you with material as it appears in the professional literature.
