Book Excerpt : Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology: Analysis of Distribution, Abundance and Species Richness in R and BUGS, Volume Two: Dynamic and Advanced Models provides a synthesis of the state-of-the-art in hierarchical models for plant and animal distribution, also focusing on the complex and more advanced models currently available. The book explains all procedures in the context of hierarchical models that represent a unified approach to ecological research, thus taking the reader from design, through data collection, and into analyses using a very powerful way of synthesizing data. Makes ecological modeling accessible for people who are struggling to use complex or advanced modeling programs Synthesizes current ecological models and explains how they are inter-connected Contains examples throughout the book, walking the reading through scenarios with both real and simulated data Presents an ideal resource for ecologists working in R, an open source version of S known for its exceptional ecology analyses, and in BUGS for more flexible Bayesian analyses
