Data Analysis for Environmental Science and Management

Publisher: University of California, Santa Barbara
Number of pages: 136

Description:
Not only do environmental practitioners need to know how to analyze data, they also need to be able to discern the quality of existing analyses (i.e., determine when someone is 'lying with statistics' or is just so sloppy that the analysis contains no real information). The goal of this book is to help teach those skills.
