BOOK EXCERPT:

Quantitative methods specifically tailored for the marine biologist While there are countless texts published on quantitative methods and many texts that cover quantitative terrestrial ecology, this text fills the need for the special quantitative problems confronting marine biologists and biological oceanographers. The author combines common quantitative techniques with recent advances in quantitative methodology and then demonstrates how these techniques can be used to study marine organisms, their behaviors, and their interactions with the environment. Readers learn how to better design experiments and sampling, employ sophisticated mathematical techniques, and accurately interpret and communicate the results. Most of this text is written at an introductory level, with a few topics that advance to more complex themes. Among the topics covered are plot/plotless sampling, biometrics, experimental design, game theory, optimization, time trends, modeling, and environmental impact assessments. Even readers new to quantitative methods will find the material accessible, with plenty of features to engage their interest, promote learning, and put their knowledge into practice: * One or more examples are provided to illustrate each individual quantitative technique presented in the text * The accompanying CD-ROM features two multimedia programs, several statistical programs, help to run complex statistical programs, and additional information amplifying topics covered in the text * References lead readers to additional information to pursue individual topics in greater depth Quantitative Analysis of Marine Biological Communities, with its extensive use of examples, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students in marine biology. Marine biologists, regardless of their level of experience, will also discover new approaches to quantitative analysis tailored to the particular needs of their field.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Natural History of Oregon...GERALD J. BAKUS, Ph.D., is Professor of Biology at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He has more than five decades of experience in the fields of biology and ecology. He obtained training in terrestrial biology as an undergraduate student, freshwater biology as a master's degree student, and marine biology for his Ph.D. at the University of Washington, Seattle. In addition to his many published research and review articles, Dr. Bakus is the author of Coral Reef Ecosystems (1994), Quantitative Analysis of Marine Biological Communities (2007), Natural History of California (2011), Natural History of Santa Catalina Island (2011), Natural History of Nevada (2012), and Natural History of Arizona (2012). The book titled Natural History of Oregon was developed from a multimedia CD developed at the University of Southern California. It was based on a course titled Natural History of Oregon, offered at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon during two summers. Dr. Bakus teaches general ecology, marine biology, natural history of California, and quantitative biology. The principal reason for producing this book is to make people aware of this remarkable state and receive enjoyment from observing its great natural beauty.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Field Methods in Marine Science: From Measurements to Models is an authoritative guide of the methods most appropriate for field research within the marine sciences, from experimental design to data analysis. Written for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as early-career researchers, this textbook also serves as an accessible introduction to the concepts and practice of modeling marine system dynamics. This textbook trains the next generation of field scientists to move beyond the classic methods of data collection and statistical analysis to contemporary methods of numerical modeling; to pursue the assimilation and synthesis of information, not the mere recording of data. Boxes and side bars highlight important questions, interesting facts, relevant examples, and research techniques that supplement the text. Students and researchers alike will find the thorough appendices useful as a way of expanding comprehension of fundamental concepts.
