Catalog #9861, Designing-Field-Studies-for-Biodiversity-Conservation

2001, 212 pages, b/w photos, tables, drawings. This book offers a comprehensible, pracical guide to using scientific inquiry in conservation work. In an engaging and accessible style, the author melds concepts, methods, and intellectual tools into a unique approach to answering environmental questions through field studies. Focusing on the fundamentals of common sense, independent thinking, and natural history, the book considers:   
  • framing the question and designing the study
  •   
  • interpreting and applying results through judicious use of statistical inference
  •   
  • taking into account the natural history of plants, animals, and landscapes
  •   
  • monitoring and assessing progress through approaches such as "bioindicator species" or "species diversity measures"
  •   
  • helping other interested parties (park staff, local communities, teachers) use scientific inquiry in addressing their own concerns
  • Detailed appendixes explain technical issues, and numerous sidebars and illustrations provide important background and thought-provoking exercises. Paperback; 8-1/4 x 10-3/4".
