Habitat Ecology and Analysis Summary

Habitat Ecology and Analysis by Joseph A. Veech (Associate Professor, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, Texas State University, USA)

The identification and analysis of the particular habitat needs of a species has always been a central focus of research and applied conservation in both ecology and wildlife biology. Although these two academic communities have developed quite separately over many years, there is now real value in attempting to unify them to allow better communication and awareness by practitioners and students from each discipline. Despite the recent dramatic increase in the types of quantitative methods for conducting habitat analyses, there is no single reference that simultaneously explains and compares all these new techniques. This accessible textbook provides the first concise, authoritative resource that clearly presents these emerging methods together and demonstrates how they can be applied to data using statistical methodology, whilst putting the decades-old pursuit of analyzing habitat into historical context. Habitat Ecology and Analysis is written for senior undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in wildlife ecology, conservation biology, and habitat ecology as well as professional ecologists, wildlife biologists, conservation biologists, and land managers requiring an accessible overview of the latest methodology.

About Joseph A. Veech (Associate Professor, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, Texas State University, USA)

Joseph A. Veech is Associate Professor at the Department of Biology, Texas State University, USA. He has broad research interests in the ecological and evolutionary factors that affect the distribution and abundance of species and biodiversity. A particular focus of his research concerns the over-riding importance of habitat. He is also interested in developing novel methods for the statistical analysis of ecological data, teaching those methods, and instilling quantitative proficiency in students.
