Now in full color, Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life is a unique marine biology laboratory and field manual that engages students in the excitement and challenges of understanding marine organisms and the environments in which they live. With activities designed to encourage students to develop their own powers of critical observation and analysis, students will benefit from a thorough examination of topics such as the physical and chemical properties of seawater, marine microbes, algae, and a wide variety of invertebrate and vertebrate animals. The new, more convenient spiral binding allows the manual to lay flat on lab tables while students work, and they can easily tear out pages to submit for a grade. Laboratory and Field Investigations in Marine Life, Eleventh Edition is an ideal resource to accompany Introduction to the Biology of Marine Life, Eleventh Edition and the clear choice for an engaging, hands-on exploration of marine biology.

This book documents and examines the state of health of coral reefs in the eastern tropical Pacific region. It touches on the occurrence of coral reefs in the waters of surrounding countries, and it explores their biogeography, biodiversity and condition relative to the El Nino southern oscillation and human impacts. Additionally contained within is a field that presents information on many of the species presented in the preceding chapters.

Emphasizing the inductive nature of statistical thinking, Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition, connects applied statistics to the environmental and ecological fields. Using examples from published works in the ecological and environmental literature, the book explains the approach to solving a statistical problem, covering model specification, parameter estimation, and model evaluation. It includes many examples to illustrate the statistical methods and presents R code for their implementation. The emphasis is on model interpretation and assessment, and using several core examples throughout the book, the author illustrates the iterative nature of statistical inference. The book starts with a description of commonly used statistical assumptions and exploratory data analysis tools for the verification of these assumptions. It then focuses on the process of building suitable statistical models, including linear and nonlinear models, classification and regression trees, generalized linear models, and multilevel models. It also discusses the use of simulation for model checking, and provides tools for a critical assessment of the developed models. The second edition also includes a complete critique of a threshold model. Environmental and Ecological Statistics with R, Second Edition focuses on statistical modeling and data analysis for environmental and ecological problems. By guiding readers through the process of scientific problem solving and statistical model development, it eases the transition from scientific hypothesis to statistical model.
