A guide to data collection, modeling and inference strategies for biological survey data using Bayesian and classical statistical methods. This book describes a general and flexible framework for modeling and inference in ecological systems based on hierarchical models, with a strict focus on the use of probability models and parametric inference. Hierarchical principles in landscape ecology: a first rendezvous 37 3 The use of hierarchical concepts in underlying disciplines ('Handbook stuff from a hierarchical eye') 45 Introduction 45 Sources of energy: from the earth's interior and celestial bodies 47Author: J.A.

At the core of the book are the landscape concept and the challenge modern Landscape Ecology is facing: the role of human society as an integral part of the Earth system and, simultaneously, a. It is an ideal companion to the text, Landscape Ecology in Theory and Practice by Monica G. Turner, Robert H. Gardner, and Robert V. O'Neill, also published by Springer-Verlag. The book is organized into nine sections comprising 20 chapters, each of which consists of a .

Researchers have been studying the ecological effects of dismantling nature for decades.   Hierarchy is a very useful theory in landscape ecology for exploring many patterns and processes across different levels of spatiotemporal scales. Considering complexity as an intrinsic attribute of a landscape, the hierarchy paradigm explains how the different components localized at a certain scale are in contact with the other components. The second level involves populations. A population contains a group of individuals -- belonging to one species and living in a specific geographic area -- which interact with one another. Population ecology studies the interactions among the individual members of a population. The third level of the ecological hierarchy describes communities.

by Marc Kéry & Andy Royle This is the permanent book web site of the Applied hierarchical modeling (AHM) project. It comprises two volumes of a book with the same name and the R package AHMbook which can be downloaded from CRAN; our BIG thanks for this go to Mike Meredith!. We plan to publish the solutions to some or all the exercises in AHM volume 1, but this will likely have to wait until.   The future of humanity depends on whether or not we have a vision to guide our transition toward sustainability, on scales ranging from local landscapes to the planet as a whole. Sustainability science is at the core of this vision, and landscapes and regions represent a pivotal scale domain. The main objectives of this paper are: (1) to elucidate key definitions and concepts of sustainability.

Landscape Ecology: “Landscape ecology is concerned with spatial patterns in the landscape and how they develop, with an emphasis on the role of disturbance, including human impacts” (Smith and Smith). It is a relatively new branch of ecology, that employs Global Information Systems.
