Reviews “Multivariate Statistics for Wildlife and Ecology Research”

Multivariate Statistics for Wildlife and Ecology Research

With its focus on the practical application of the techniques of multivariate statistics, this book shapes the powerful tools of statistics for the specific needs of ecologists and makes statistics more applicable to their course of study. It gives readers a solid conceptual understanding of the role of multivariate statistics in ecological applications and the relationships among various techniques, while avoiding detailed mathematics and the underlying theory. More importantly, the reader will gain insight into the type of research questions best handled by each technique and the important considerations in applying them. Whether used as a textbook for specialised courses or as a supplement to general statistics texts, the book emphasises

Question by John G: Are Hawthorn Berries safe to take as natural medicine?
I’m 17yrs old and I wanted to know if it’s safe to take these, being that I have poor circulation…I know that I can’t take Horse Chestnut, as I heard, cause I’m too young.


Best answer:

Answer by oldtimekid2
At 17, you should be safe to take it… but be aware that supplements and herbs generally have recommended doses based on what an average adult needs, so you may want to be careful.

If you want to play on the safe side, L-Arginine is much better for circulation and that’s an Amino Acid (which is already occurring in most any protein that you eat already). Hawthorn is really just listed for cardiovascular health and circulation is one of the minor impacts… L-Arginine is specifically used just for circulation.
Good luck!

    This book is very applied and the practitioner with little statistical knowledge will be able to benefit from it. It is easy to read and has many examples. I would say that it is written for MS level grad students. I find it very useful for examples of application.
    There is not much theory and if you are looking to see how the techniques are founded in first principles, this is not the book for you. If you just want to know how to do it and not concerned too much with underlying theory, you will enjoy this.
    This is a good overview of the techniques and what they can do. If you end up using a technique, you might want to find a different text to explore the theory more if that is your desire.

    This book is easy to read and includes many real world examples. I appreciate that it is not too heavy on the statistical semantics which I can get from other books. I like the fact that people on many levels can read this book and understand the statistical methods without being overly intimidated by them. I return to this book time and time again during the course of my graduate studies.
