Statistik angewandt: Datenanalyse ist (k)eine Kunst by Franz Kronthaler

By Franz Kronthaler

Informationen aus Daten zu gewinnen und einen Datensatz systematisch zu analysieren ist (k)eine Kunst. „Statistik Angewandt“ ist für all jene geschrieben, die mit Hilfe von Daten Informationen gewinnen wollen.
In diesem Buch werden die für eine Datenanalyse benötigten Methoden der Statistik anhand eines einzigen Datensatzes vorgestellt und diskutiert. Dadurch wird deutlich, wie die Methoden der Statistik aufeinander aufbauen. Aus dem Datensatz werden nach und nach immer mehr Informationen gezogen. Die systematische Vorgehensweise der examine eines Datensatzes wird durch den Aufbau des Buches eindrücklich illustriert.
Der nicht-mathematische Zugang zu den Konzepten der Statistik und der Fokus auf die Anwendung statistischer Methoden versetzen den Leser in die Lage, einen Datensatz ohne grossen Aufwand gründlich zu analysieren.

Phenological Research: Methods for Environmental and Climate by Irene L. Hudson, Marie R. Keatley

By Irene L. Hudson, Marie R. Keatley

As weather swap maintains to dominate the overseas environmental time table, phenology – the research of the timing of routine organic occasions – has obtained expanding learn consciousness, resulting in an rising consensus that phenology will be considered as an ‘early caution process’ for weather switch impact.

A multidisciplinary technological know-how concerning many branches of ecology, geography and distant sensing, phenology so far has lacked a coherent methodological textual content. This new synthesis, together with contributions from some of the world’s major phenologists, hence fills a severe hole within the present organic literature. supplying evaluations of present tools, in addition to detailing novel and rising methodologies, the e-book, with its wide suite of references, offers readers with an realizing of either the theoretical foundation and the capability purposes required to undertake and adapt new analytical and layout methods.

An worthy resource booklet for researchers and scholars in ecology and weather switch technological know-how, the publication additionally presents an invaluable reference for practitioners in a number sectors, together with human wellbeing and fitness, fisheries, forestry, agriculture and usual source management.

Applied Functional Data Analysis by J.O. Ramsay

By J.O. Ramsay

A pleasant, if overpriced, booklet, yet no longer one who you must hold, in contrast to Ramsay and Silverman's "Functional info research" (FDA). AFDA elaborates numerous examples brought in FDA. The examples hide approximately 60% of FDA's fabric: smoothing is given less area than in FDA, and regression (cf. FDA's Chapters 12-15) is skipped over. when you are determining among the 2 books, opt for FDA.
