This precise textbook introduces undergraduate scholars to quantitative types and strategies in ecology, behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation. It explores the center ideas shared by way of those similar fields utilizing instruments and sensible abilities similar to experimental layout, producing phylogenies, uncomplicated statistical inference, and persuasive furnish writing. And individuals use examples from their very own state of the art examine, offering different perspectives to interact scholars and expand their understanding.
this can be the one textbook at the topic that includes a collaborative "active studying" procedure that emphasizes hands-on studying. each bankruptcy has routines that let scholars to paintings at once with the fabric at their very own velocity and in small teams. each one challenge contains information provided in a wealthy array of codecs, which scholars use to reply to questions that illustrate styles, ideas, and techniques. issues diversity from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and inhabitants potent dimension to optimum foraging and indices of biodiversity. The ebook additionally contains a complete glossary.
