Quantitative ecology : spatial and temporal scaling / David C. Schneider.

By: Schneider, David CMaterial type: TextTextPublication details: San Diego : Academic Press, c1994. ISBN: 0126278601Subject(s): Ecology -- MathematicsDDC classification: 574.5/01/51 LOC classification: QH541.15.M34 | S36 1994
Partial contents:
Ch. 1. The Concept of Scale in Ecology -- Ch. 2. Multiscale Analysis -- Ch. 3. Quantities -- Ch. 4. Units and Dimensions -- Ch. 5. Rescaling Quantities -- Ch. 6. The Scope of Quantities -- Ch. 7. The Geography and Chronology of Quantities -- Ch. 8. Quantities Derived from Sequential Measurements -- Ch. 9. Ensemble Quantities: Weighted Sums -- Ch. 10. Ensemble Quantities: Variability -- Ch. 11. Equations -- Ch. 12. Expected Value of Quantities -- Ch. 13. Allometric Rescaling -- Ch. 14. Spatial Scaling.
Summary: Quantitative Ecology reviews the manifold ways that scale influences the interpretation of ecological variation. Ecologists recognize the significance of scale and magnitude in providing a context for resolution of ecological problems. Written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty researchers, this book synthesizes a burgeoning literature on the influences of scale. As scale, magnitude, quantity, and measurement occupy an expanding role in ecology, Quantitative Ecology will be an indispensable addition to individual and institutional libraries.
