about this item

This text on modeling complex, adaptive ecosystems is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in environmental science, environmental management, and sustainability. The book explains theory and demonstrates real-world applications of statistics to problems in risk, complexity, and uncertainty. Cases highlight the use of statistics to solve socioeconomic and environmental problems related to food and water, energy, climate change, and global sustainability. Some specific problems addressed are harmful emissions and depletion of resources. Some solutions described are geospatial intelligence, ecosystem observation and modeling, and modeling of cumulative impacts and sensitive trade-offs. A glossary is included, along with b&w charts and diagrams. The book assumes basics of environmental science, understanding of quantitative methods for exploring data, and quantitative modeling of spatial and temporal patterns and processes.
