Through an integrated and comparative approach, Bayesian Likelihood Methods in Ecology and Biology provides a clear guide to the development, application, and interpretation of Bayesian statistical methods to real-world scientific problems in ecology and biology. The book presents an overview of likelihood-based statistical models and offers a modern Bayesian interpretation. Applications of these models to biological and ecological problems are then presented in detail. Statistical methods used for calculations include linear models, categorical data analysis, and survival analysis. A CD-ROM of datasets and computer coding using programs such as WinBUGS and S-PLUS accompanies the book.
